Climbat is well-known in the world of climbing as an operator of climbing rooms oriented for all levels: from initiations in climbing to training and improvement for climbers of the highest level. Climbat offers you a great option to relax, take distance and refocus. According to them, the indoor climbing in the center of the city represents a way of doing a slow activity in a fast world. The first option they offer is the climbing of a boulder. It consists of ascending blocks or small walls, without the necessity of the conventional materials. The block presents “problems” to be solved, both in ascension and in crossing. You can try rope climbing as well and go over different climbing routes of different degrees of difficulty. It is certainly the most spectacular form of this sport since it reaches higher altitudes than those practiced in the bouldering technique.
