Tromsø Climbing Club also arranges family climbing on Saturdays. This is called "Familieklatring". Every Saturday from 10 AM- 12 PM there will be instructors to guide the adults to belay the children. Please tell the reception that you are attending "familieklatring" when paying.
We also have organized training groups for children and youth. Send us an email if your child wants to join.
If you do not have your own equipment, you can rent everything you need to climb. We also sell a selection of climbing equipment if you want to have your own. Prices for equipment rental can be found below.
