Climbing safely means climbing responsibly! Please note the following safety rules for safe climbing in Garda Trentino:
Wear a helmet at all times, both when climbing and under the climbing wall so as to protect against falling rocks.
Before climbing, check all gear and equipment – climbing harness, carabiners, safety rope and knots – as well as belaying devices.
Children who are not climbing must be kept away from the climbing walls, nor can they play near the climbing walls.
Climbers must always secure themselves on all safety points on the wall! Falls are always possible, even on a “simple” route.
Never climb without using carabiners.
The carabiner ring must always be closed when abseiling.
Only stand directly at or in front of the wall if you are actually climbing or belaying. Always keep other climbers on the wall in mind. In addition, climbers
must never linger in a direct fall line under other climbers.
The condition of carabiners must be continually checked. If there is even the slightest doubt about the safety of the carabiner, it must be replaced.
Bouldering requires the use of a crash pad and common protection techniques. Also check whether the ground is clear of any dangerous objects should a fall occur. Bouldering should not be attempted more than four metres off the ground.
Remove all rings and bracelets before climbing to protect yourself from injury.
Use only the top anchor when top roping and check that the rope runs safely through the ring or carabiner.
Ensure that the weight difference between those on a rope is not too great. The lead climber should not be more than 1.3 times the weight of the belayer.
If you are unfamiliar with the climbing gear or safety methods, get an experienced climber to accompany you or contact a climbing school in Garda Trentino.
