The Bloczone gym is one of the biggest climbing centres in Switzerland. You will find routes measuring up to 15 meters in length on structures with varied slopes to suit all climbers, beginners and experienced. The middle of the room is occupied by two large blocks that do not require the use of a rope for climbing as there are thick mattresses underneath to cushion falls. The room also has an area suitable for children. During your stay, you can enjoy snacks and beverages in our cosy cafeteria. Key points:
1500 m2
of climbing and bouldering walls
routes and boulder problems which are frequently exchanged
installed ropes for climbing in top rope
automatic belay systems for solo climbing
