In Klosters it's a steep climb. 77 metres, to be exact. We are talking about the new climbing park "Sunnibergbrücke Climbing". A total of 20 climbing routes as well as two so-called multi-rope routes have been created at bridge pier number two. The climbing facility is free of charge and open to the public, but for insurance purposes you do it at your own risk.
The longest of these routes leads 55 metres upwards. The difficulty levels vary from easy (climbing scale 4a) to very difficult (climbing scale 8a). A total of 2300 holds have been installed on 600 climbing metres. As an impressive size comparison: the new climbing park is about a quarter of the length of the conventional route used to climb the north face of the Eiger.
This project grew out of a beer idea by mountain guide Marco Benz of the Prättigau/Davos mountain guide association involved in the project more than 15 years ago. The lines and shapes of the 526-metre-long Sunniberg Bridge had inspired him to set up a climbing garden on one of the pillars. The people in charge of the project for the 800th anniversary celebrations in Klosters had an open ear for the daring project and included it in their impulse programme.
The Sunniberg Bridge, opened in 2005, is an architectural masterpiece by the renowned Swiss civil engineer Christian Menn (1927-2018). Out of respect for his building, only grey instead of colourful climbing holds were therefore mounted on the concrete pier. The easiest way to reach the site is via Serneus and park your car at the Walki car park in Serneus. Followed by a 15-minute walk.
Exercise your strength, balance and dexterity on a wall that challenges you in stages. Fifty routes of all difficulty levels and a bouldering facility are installed on an area of 564 m2. On the climbing wall, there are two sectors with inclined profiles for beginners and children. For cracks, there are overhanging and even horizontal sectors that are almost nine metres high at the highest point. The main wall is designed for moderate climbing levels.
The SAC climbing hall is located in the middle of Küblis at Hauptstrasse 6c. It offers a climbing area of over 800 m2 with 74 to 85 routes. The area is divided into 630 m2 climbing wall, 150 m2 bolder facility with four boulder blocks and 50 m2 roof. Adults and children from the age of four (accompanied by an adult) can take climbing courses. It is also possible to rent climbing equipment for adults and children directly in the hall.
