Climbing route creation

Our team of professional route-setters will come, see and conquer your wall ! We can dismantle, clean and renew your climbing routes on site.
Beforehand, a personalised audit of your structure is carried out, to establish the worn-out or broken holds which are therefore a risk to the user. Any sub-standard items are scrapped.
Route renewal is a key element in helping users progress throughout the year, but also in growing the number of visitors to your structure.
Thanks to our professionals' advice and assistance, you will become more independent in creating and managing your routes.
For more information on these services, please contact us with details of your requirements.

Safety First

Maintenance :
Owners or managers of artificial climbing structures (ACS), with or without protection points, are responsible for the upkeep of their equipment and components.
They must :
> ensure that the equipment provides all necessary safety guarantees (certificate of compliance)
> take steps to maintain ongoing safety (annual maintenance contract)
> maintain and check individual safety equipment, such as ropes, harnesses, quickdraws etc.

Note that placing and replacing handholds to create new routes, is part of the normal life of an ACS, and is not considered a maintenance operation. This is normally carried out by users.

Safety standards :
French and European standards have been established to ensure maximum security for ACS users. You may access the official version of these norms here : www.afnor.org (France)
