21.09.2011 to 30.10.2011 19:00 to 09:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Dornacherstrass behind e-ipsos

Reposted until the end of Summer... We are still hanging around on walls, protected only by a sturdy rope and a partner clinging on at the bottom... Come join us

See also communities, http://www.englishforum.ch/group.php?groupid=89

The Venue is behind e IPSOS in Gundeli. Tram 15/16 or bus 36

NOTE We climb on Wednesday's Friday's and Sundays. Check with me for Sunday climbing in advance in case people are away
http://www.kletterhalle7.ch


Fridays we usually head over to the Unser Bar next door for a beer and rag on those too unfit to climb... Wednesday's as we feel

Updated: we are normally there at 6:30pm. Let me know if you are interested in a sunday "work off the hangover" session. Kletterhalle opens at 10:00, I am usually there around 11. We also climb some other nights if you wish to join us another time

Corrected the advertised day oh:

Hiyas, is there anyone headed to the gym tonight? I'm in Olten, but would happily make the trip if other anglophones will be present!

Hello Mettew!

There should be at two or three of us there on Tuesday! I'll send you an email on Tuesday morning letting you know how to find us. In the meanwhile, check out the new Basel Climbing group (http://www.englishforum.ch/group.php?groupid=89)

warmly,

Re: The Continuation of Wall Climbing

i made 2 inspection visits to this hall last year but noticed every rope in the hall was in urgent need of replacement. All were badly frayed and worn eg 11mm one end - the other down to about than 8mm, 2 ropes on the popular routes were down to 7mm on the belay - they obviously didnt rotate the ropes.

Also noticed large amounts of grit on the floor and some items which had been there for 3 weeks so no cleaning of the floor.

I assume the situation has changed?

Ropes are being replaced. They are safe enough. The floors are also clean

Re: The Continuation of Wall Climbing

Hey Bexie,

Am new to Wall climbing as well. Would you guys be around this Wednesday? If yes, I would like to try myself out... Hope it's not as hard as learning German could be...
I wish had seen this event yesterday so that I could have joined you guys today.... Hard luck
