Übergrippen’s Youth Climbing Teams and Clubs run throughout the year.  If your child wishes to join either our competitive teams or our recreational/social clubs we require that they either complete our Crag Akademie or are already belay-certified and complete an evaluation of climbing technique with one of our coaches. Crag Akademie is a 6 week long intro to climbing course for kids and starts approximately every 3 weeks.

Once your child has completed Akademie, they may wish to continue climbing; we offer many options!!!
