For climbing and belaying at Klättercentret it is mandatory to carry the national climbing licenses. For top rope belaying the green license is sufficient. For lead climbing and lead belaying the red license is needed.
If you don’t have either of these licenses, but have the proper knowledge and skill, you can take the exam (called uppklättring, in Swedish). The exam consists of a short written test followed by a practical test. If you pass these you will receive the green or the red license, depending on which test you take. Give us a call to find a time to perform the test at +46(0)18-4180814, or e-mail us at email@example.com,
If you don’t have the skill and knowledge yet, please attend our basic indoor climbing course (Grundkurs). The course is held over three sessions. Read more about this course here.

1. Can I start a direct debit agreement without a Swedish personal number or a Swedish bank account?
No, unfortunately it is not possible. We suggest you to buy either a 10x, 25x entrance card or a 6 month card.
2. I am an experienced climber but people ask me for a green card, what is that?
Due to insurance policies throughout Sweden everyone who wants to belay in a climbing gym that is approved by the Swedish Climbing Association needs to have a green card (Top rope), red card (Lead) that states the persons theoretical and practical knowledge about belaying. The test takes about 30 minutes and is a combination of a short theoretical and a practical test. We have certified instructors that can perform this test with us at all our locations. Give us a call to find a time to take the test on +46(0)18-4180814
