After a few touches, they got used to the unfamiliar material concrete, and after some further tasting, they even like it! Although he is not a giant with his height of about 10 meters, among the initiates there should even be a 4-pitch route. A little later, one finds that the "tower" offers endless climbing possibilities for own variants, eg "only hourglasses": only hourglasses are allowed for the hands. So you can adapt to the routes and face ever new challenges.
The difficulties of the defined routes are between the IV and VIII degrees, there is even a chimney as well as the "small" and the "big" roof. Basically, the tower between "positive" and "negative" differences: Climbing negative means that you can use "everything" at grip and kick options, positive means, however, that omitting the large number of holes and only handles, bands and bars uses, which result from the structure of the wall.
The tower itself is regularly maintained, so this season some of the old "Sauschwänze" were exchanged for carbines on chains. An emergency telephone and bandages are also available. The necessary climbing card is available for 35 € per year at the HSP or at the tennis courts
