Course "Climbing Knots"

Anyone who climbs understands that knots are no joke!
Every knot used in climbing reduces the strength of the alpine rope. This is due to the twisting and interlacing of the threads in the knot, which leads to their incompleteness and even non-participation of some of them in the subsequent load.

In our engaging workshops, participants will not only learn but also master the essential knots commonly used in climbing. Explore the knot variations, discover different tying techniques, and delve into their unique advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, gain valuable insights and expert tips on applying these knots effectively in climbing and belaying scenarios.

Please note that this course is open to individuals aged 18 and above.
