Climb higher and higher up the steep rocks with the help of fixed steel cables, anchors and ladders. Your aim is always to reach the exit or the summit.
There are different levels of difficulty, just as in "proper" rock climbing. These range from A for children to D/E for true rock-climbing professionals and fearless adrenaline junkies. Almost everybody can master the easy routes, whereas the level D/E routes require very strong arms and legs as well as a high degree of skill. However, climbers on these routes are rewarded with even more unbelievable panoramic views.
