Indoor rock climbing / bouldering Lausanne

Hey All,

Wondering if anyone wants to check out this place in Lausanne for some indoor climbing.

http://www.lecube.ch/

Looks like a cool place!

I am pretty much still a beginner but would love to go here 1-2x month

Let me know

Hi gaastra, I'd be up for giving it a go - I'm also pretty much a beginner but I really enjoy climbing. PM me if you're interested.

Re: Indoor rock climbing / bouldering Lausanne

I've become a regular at Le Cube since moving to Lausanne a couple of months back.

There is generally welcoming atmosphere from staff and other climbers. Some evenings, between 6.30-8.30pm, it can get really busy. This isn't ideal if you're a beginner, especially if you don't want a small audience watching you shake your way to the top of a climb. Friday evenings and weekends are quieter, but on weekend mornings there are often lots of kids.

If you've never done any climbing before, I think the level at Le Cube is a bit on the stiff side, but there will be things you can do and you will improve quickly.

If you've never tried bouldering before, it is a great way to start climbing, because you don't need any equipment, just a pair of shoes (which you can hire from the Cube).

I'm happy to show anyone around or teach some basics to get you started, just get in touch.

Re: Indoor rock climbing / bouldering Lausanne

There is a new indoor facility that has opened behind the Miami Bowling centre in Echandens (west of Crissier). It is called "La salle d'escalade Rocspot - Echandens VD". From the outside of the building, it looks like you might be able to climb on the outside of the building as well.

Website: www.grimper.ch

There is also a climbing site in canton Fribourg (1762 Givisiez) that is mentioned on the website.

The website also has a list of outdoor climbing sites in the French speaking areas of CH. This may be a good resource for certain people.
