Main Season 2020/21
Climbing in KSI Climbing Department
Makes you a good climber in an attractive climbing environment!
Note: in this period training is due to corona organized in seperated groups with max. 10 participants which eg have one hour of climbing and one hour of climbers workout.
We train indoor at the only hydraulic (moveeable) climbing wall in the KF9-Hall and at the big climbing tower behind 53 Nørre Allé.
We do both bouldering and top rope climbing and arrange climbing trips in Sweden and Norway (ice climbing).
We always have certified trainers offering high quality training at different levels and who are allowed to issue belaying certificates (K2)
We offer the possibility for free training Friday, Satyrday and Sunday - free traing with rope on the climbing tower requires a belying certificate (mandatory K2 certificate).
NEW: All who have signed up for Climbing either in the Summer or Main Season are invited to KSI Rope Open (at the end of September).

Will do outdoor training in September and parts of October (safety and rope procedures). Hereafter the training will be indoor (technique training/bouldering) untill March or April (depending on weather) where the teams will train outdoor again (combination of safety and technhique!).
Bouldering Is climbing without ropes, takes place mainly in KF9-Hallen on the indoor climbing wall, which is Denmark's only hydraulic, three-piece climbing wall which is extremely flexible. Bouldering is climbing at low altitude without rope and mattresses. We train technique, agility, strength and ability to read structures for potential boulder problems and safety for unloading, spotting etc.
There are routes designed for the first-time climber as well as for the serious climber looking for a workout.
Access to premises at 57 Nørre Allé: You must possess a valid access card beforehand, and you just pick it up at the KSI-Office, 53 Nørre Allé.
The rope climbing in KSI takes place on the outdoor climbing wall next to the tennis courts behind 53 Nørre Allé. On the climbing tower there are grips/routes. Also here there are routes designed for the first-time climber as well as for the serious climber looking for a workout.
Top rope climbing is easy to start with as there is a rope in you all the way up, which can be remarkable when you find the wall challenging, etc. The rope allows you to concentrate on the most important, ie. the movements themselves.
After have climbed top rope for some time, most people will want to try to lead themselves. Here you start from the ground and pick up the rope along the way. It's very similar to what you want to do on a rock where you can not always put a rope on top of the rock.
Later in the season and in the more experinced classes, elements from K3 can be practiced.
