Fixed rope routes are areas in the rock which are secured by steel ropes and iron hooks. The steel rope is intended for self-securing with special equipment. These “iron trails” can partly be tackled by beginners and sportspersons with little climbing experience. However, climbing gear and a head for heights are indispensable requirements.
Which climbing equipment do I need for a fixed rope route?
You absolutely need:
- Climbing harness
- Fixed rope route climbing set with two carabiners
- Climbing helmet
- Climbing shoes or good, solid shoes
