One month Urbanapes climbing gym

Now it has been more than one month ago, that the Urbanapes climbing gym in Luebeck opened it’s gates. The crazy March is over and things get slowly back to normal.
The first time was as far as I can see, a quite successful time for Luebeck’s first real climbing facility. Every time I drop in, to give some courses or just to climb for myself, I see many people climbing out or just hanging out in the lounge. The lounge itself is a little highlight, as it is build in the old forge and all the tools were left inside – therefore you really have a unique atmosphere.

 

The routes go from 3- to 10- and for every climbing level you can find supreme movement problems – if you want try my routes, they are of course the best haha. Opening times are from 11 to 23 o’clock, so you have loads of time to go for a after-work climbing session. If you are not yet a climber, you can make the official DAV (German Alpine Club) license in a 3 hours course.

 

For more info visit http://urbanapes.de/ or write me a mail if you want to have a course with me at a special date or time. Because if you are more than 4 people we can fix a new date freely – so gather up your friends and let’s go for some climbing. If you are less people you can also write me a message and I will try to fill the course up with other guys. Prices and everything else are the same as stated on the website.

 

As a little appetizer I append some pictures of the opening, which was a really nice day, first having press there and doing the formal stuff, later there was a big student climbing contests organized by Hi-KGB and Axel. Right afterwards the open climbing time started, where everybody were able to try out how it feels to be at the wall. This went on till 22 o’clock when we finally started to get some beer and pizza to start the after show party. What a awesome day.

 

Urban apes climbing gym status

After I got back from Sicily I had the cool opportunity to set some routes in the new Urban Apes climbing gym. Unfortunately I just managed to set up two, as I didn’t had that much time. Anyways the walls look pretty awesome – nearly the half of the gym is already done. Many super cool routes from UIAA grade 3 to 10. As you know the official opening day is the 02.03.2012 with some important people of sport and politics – just mark this day red in your calender guys. Lübeck will be a much nicer place with this facility!

 

If you seek for more and up-to-date information check out the facebook page of urban apes and the climbing gym. It would be really cool if you spread the news about the opening and the gym around facebook and your friends. As more you support as bigger it will grow. I attached some pictures below for you, just a few impressions.
