Build endurance and strength with Indoor Climbing

Climbing is considered to be one of the most innovative physical activities available. Your mind will benefit from problem solving while your body will build endurance and strength. The Climbing Hall is a place to build trust, camaraderie, and self confidence. With indoor climbing you will get a sense of accomplishment with your workout. Along with improving yourself physically, you can challenge yourself mentally and even benefit socially. We offer bouldering, top rope climbing, lead climbing, and certification classes - the Climbing Hall is the perfect place to train for the challenging climbing of Bavaria.

 

Challenge yourself or your team on the High Ropes Course
The high ropes course is a two-part course, east of the main camp site, with an 11-meter-high area designed for Soldiers’ training only. The second area or public area contains three levels of ropes ranging from 4 to 9 meters high. Once harnessed participants will be able to swing, ascend, traverse and balance their way across obstacles. At the end of the ropes challenge course there are five zip lines for participants to descend.
