The majority of commercial climbing facilities or adventure parks are still equipped with conventional climbing safety systems based on Klettersteig/self-belay techniques leaving it entirely to visitors to ensure they are properly attached to the safety line at all times whilst completing a climbing course. Self-belaying relies on two carabiners which, when it comes to multi-parcourse layouts, will inevitably have to be detached from the main safety line after completing one course, to be reattached to the safety line of the subsequent course. These transition points pose the greatest risks to visitors and, in particular, to children.

Self-belay is a risky business!

Unfortunately, climbing accidents as a result of visitors unintentionally detaching themselves from the safety system by removing both carabiners simultaneously from the safety line are reported by the media almost every year.

However, and thanks to the latest safety technology provided by Skywalker, suitable for all our climbing course layouts, these accidents are now completely avoidable. In order for you to make a relevant decision on what safety system is best, we have made a belay comparison:
