Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hi there.

Does anybody have an experience with this bouldering center in Adliswil.
http://www.climbing.ch/

Is it good? How much is it? What is opening hour?

I want to learn rock climbing, that will be the closest indoor-climbing center from my place.

Thanks...

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Been to the centre once. It doesn't really have too many easy tours so not the best place for a beginner. I had trouble being able to do much and i've been climbing for a couple of years and can manage 6a-6b. Although bouldering is a bit different type of climbing. Not sure of the opening hours but i think it opens about 5 or 6 pm til about 10 or so. Its run by one of teh branches of the swiss alpine club not sure which section though. Its not the zürich section (uto) you may be able to find more info on the sac website. www.sac.ch Climbing hall in schlieren is probably a better bet for a beginner alot more easy tours.

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hi Ponny93

I live in Adliswil and I climb at the boalder centre, this is only for experienced climbers, the easiest route in the centre is as about 6a, everything is massively overhung. I have been climbing for almost 8 years now and I have to be at my peak of fitness to climb there.

But to answer your question about opening times, there aren't any, people who pay an annual fee have a card that opens the door and if you don't have a card then you have to ring the bell. It's 300 CHF per year, or you can pay 10 CHF per go. But there are no staff in the centre, you have to just put your money in the box on the wall and sign the book. And bring an MP3 player because you can plug it into the radio and play it if no one else has.

Places like Schlieren, Milandia and Minimum are much better for beginners.

So pick your climbing centre and then give me a shout.

Cheers

Matthew

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hello Zurich climbers (and anyone else who's nearby),

I've noticed quite a few other people posting about climbing in the Zurich area over the last few weeks - I'm going to bump this thread from time to time to see how much interest is out there. Now it's warmed up it's the perfect time to get back out on the crags. I'm keen to go somewhere this Saturday (5 April) or either/both the 12th and 13th. I have a book of local climbs, full set of climbing gear, rope, helmet. No car, planning to get the train somewhere nearby.

Once I've worked out if there's much interest I'll see about setting something up regularly for new climbers to come along.

Thanks,

Ali.

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hi Ali,

sounds great to me and more than happy to come along, I also have got the full equipment and some spare parts so I could lend some out. I'm not sure if the wheather will be good this WE... I have the feeling that it is still a little bit too early, but we could decide on Friday

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hi Ali,

Would enjoy coming along on weekends, as I look forward to climbing outside again. If it's raining then Schlieren is always a good option for me. I have a car, so this could open up other options.

I'm also interested in 1/2 to 3/4 days, leave early on a Sat or Sunday, climb all morning, and be back in ZH area around 2pm to 3pm - if anyone is interested.

Nathan

Hi Marat,

I'm checking with Ali and the others to see who is available and if anyone is up for climbing.

They say the weather will be great. I was hoping to go Sunday, if you're interested. Let me know. I'll keep you posted regarding what answer I get from the others.

Hi Marat,

Great. I won't be able to access the internet today, so SMS or call me on 079-581-3888 so we can coordinate a time and place where we meet Sunday morning.

If anyone else from the englishforum wants to join, my car can take 4 to 5 people. Just drop me an SMS.

Nathan

It looks like I'm free tomorrow for a day (or maybe just the morning) of cragging. Anyone have any interest? Nathan?

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Hi Mayt,

the times you write about are impossible for me as I work till late... we normally go in the afternoon on weekdays (1900-2200) and are planning to go outside whenever the wheather is good on a weekend. If you want to join us (we are a nice group 6-8 mixed ability climbers) then please pm me your email and you'll get an invitation whenever some of us plan to climb.... (or you can post your own invitation)

Hope to see you soon
Cheers

Re: [Zurich, Adliswil] Any rock climbers out there?

Next week it looks like there'll be a few of us going to Schlieren Tuesday and Thursday evening. Let me know if you want to come along - no experience necessary, I am happy to help out showing how to belay, put on harness...

Thanks,

Ali
