Our basic indoor climbing course (Grundkurs) is a course which covers the essentials and gives you the knowledge to start climbing in a secure and efficient manner. In a small group of 4-12 participants you’ll learn the basics about gear requirements and the necessary belaying techniques used with climbing. The course is divided into three parts with a green card examination at the end and certificate upon completion.
We recommend all our customers to belay with an assisted locking brake, therefore you will learn to belay with the assisted locking brake GriGri.
During the first part of the course you’ll learn the basics in safety, including how to use the climbing equipment, belay technique and partner check. This is combined with practical exercises where you’ll also get the chance to climb.
During the second part of the course we’ll repeat what was taught in part one, to soak up the knowledge and gain a better understanding. You’ll learn some more about climbing equipment and also what we call the art of falling and how to belay a climber that is falling.
During part three you will undergo the exam for the green card. The exam consists of a short written test followed by a practical test where you share your ability and understanding of what you have learnt to your instructor. Passing the exam entitles you to a green card, which is the license that is mandatory for belaying at Klättercentret and also for all other certified climbing gyms in Sweden. You will also receive a certificate and compendium including useful and important information to take home with you.
