The majority of commercial climbing facilities or adventure parks still use traditional climbing safety systems based on Klettersteig/self-belay procedures, leaving it up to visitors to verify that they are correctly tied to the safety line at all times when climbing. When it comes to multi-parcourse layouts, self-belaying relies on two carabiners, which must be disconnected from the main safety line after finishing one course and reattached to the succeeding course's safety line. These transition moments are the most dangerous for visitors, especially children.

Self-belay is a risky business!

Climbing mishaps occur practically every year as a result of visitors mistakenly detaching themselves from the safety system by pulling both carabiners from the safety line at the same time.Climbing mishaps occur practically every year as a result of visitors mistakenly detaching themselves from the safety system by pulling both carabiners from the safety line at the same time.

However, owing to Skywalker's latest safety technology, which is compatible with all of our climbing course layouts, these mishaps are now 100% avoidable. We've put up a belay comparison to help you decide which safety solution is ideal for you:
