|Über uns||HangDog is an indoor rock climbing and bouldering gym for all ages and abilities. It's the ultimate team builder for school groups, families, and collegues|
How climbing works:
A climber is attached to a safety rope that goes up to the top of the wall and back down to the person holding the safety rope (belayer).
As the climber climbs up the belayer pulls the rope through a machine. If the climber lets go of the wall, the machine locks and the climber hangs safely on the rope.
The belayer can lower the climber on the rope from any height.
Belayers must be 13 or over. We recommend a ratio of between 2 and 3 children to each Belayer. So if you have 10 children coming, we'd recommend about 4-5 adults. More adults are unnecessary, and less adults means that the children won’t be able to climb as many times.
If you are an experienced belayer already then you'll just need to show your skills to the instructor (at an appropriate time) and they will give you a temporary belay license.
Bookings are essential. Make a booking now! We can teach you what you need to know quickly and then you'll be able to climb throughout the gym.
Timing of the Supervised Safety Briefing:
A briefing normally takes about 50mins. After that you can stay and climb giving a total of two hours in the gym.
Its good to arrive a few minutes early to get comfortable. You can watch and see how climbing works while you wait.
Once everyone's arrived, the instructor will give a belay briefing AKA how to hold the safety rope. Climbing will start pretty quickly.
After each person has had a go the group will have a tour of the gym to see what there is to do.
The instructor will continue watching the group belay until everyone has a "Temporary Belay License".
Once you've been given the Temporary Belay License you can climb where ever you like.
Full Belay License:
Once you have gained your full Top Rope Belay License you don't need to book a Safety Briefing each time you come in to climb.
People get hot while climbing so the climbers will need layers to strip off as they warm up. The gym is large and diffi
