Reconnecting with nature – Rock climbing in Soca Valley

What is more beautiful than active recreation in the company of fellow climbers?

Fighting gravity as you conquer your fears and inhibitions, achieving the satisfaction of climbing a route, and a spectacular view of the scenery below are the rewards of your experience on the rock wall.

Send it!

Sport climbing is rock climbing in a natural setting in designated places that are referred to as climbing kindergartens. Climbing is an activity suitable for all ages and done while adhering to the rules of safety, it is a completely safe sport.  This sport is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of outdoor recreation, and therefore it is quite common to meet entire families at climbing areas.

Sports climbing is not simply overcoming gravity. It should be seen as a kind of a chess match in the vertical, where the choice of moves in their proper sequence is essential. This is an exciting 4 – 5 hour game that can bring you a lot of pleasure. Having reached the top of your route, you can bask in the joy of success, especially if the climb pushed you beyond limits you believed were possible. At the top, you will be rewarded with another view of our beautiful valley.

How difficult is sports rock climbing?

Depending on your preference, experience, knowledge, physical ability, and mental preparedness, you can select the appropriate level of difficulty and routes. The choice is vast.

In Bovec and the surrounding areas, several climbing areas are featuring a variety of routes with a wide range of difficulties.

Our professionally qualified climbing instructor will competently and wisely advise you, always taking care of your safety and providing you with a wide breadth of knowledge of this sport.

 

What about our youngest?

The rock climbing sessions are suitable also for families with younger children. The climbing itself is appropriate for kids above age 8, but younger kids can also join the session since the area is in a safe natural environment with a lot of interesting materials to play with. So the entire family is included, even our youngest, spending quality time together, watching climbers at work and discovering the pristine nature of Soca valley.

Minimum participants and group dynamics

  • Minimum number of guests: 2,
  • maximum number of guests per guide: 4.

     

If you are alone, don’t worry, we will join you in a group. Joining a trip as a couple – it’s more likely you will join a small team of climbing enthusiasts. A family or a group of friends? You will most likely have a guide for yourself. If you are in doubt or worried, about how would you fit in, contact us without hesitation. We will customize your trip in a way that everyone will leave climbing walls pleased.

Sports climbing Soca Valley – Program

We will climb at one of the climbing areas around Bovec. Based on weather conditions, your desires and physical capabilities, the instructor will determine the most suitable climbing location.

Upon arrival at the climbing area, the instructor will give an outline of the day, introduce you to climbing gear, and explain the basics of climbing and the important rules of climbing safety.

 

The next step is a general aerobic warm-up followed by stretching and warm-up of specific muscle groups most critical in climbing. Warm-up and stretching are quite critical to prevent injury due to overexertion.  After you are sufficiently prepared, then your adventure begins in earnest.

 

The instructor will demonstrate how to properly put on your climbing gear.  He will then show you how to climb and how to provide protection for your fellow climbers by belaying them.

Now it’s your turn to climb. You will be protected by a technique referred to as “top rope,” a rope secured at the top of the route. With this method of protection, you will be secured against a long fall. Initially, the instructor will provide protection by belaying you with a rope, then as you progress you will belay one another, always under the watchful eye of your instructor.

Your instructor will be offering input, guarding against mistakes, and providing continual instruction as you climb.

Often we have noticed that many visitors set their minds on routes and conquests that are beyond the abilities of their untrained fingers. Therefore, we are always careful to help our guests not overextend themselves and subsequently experience unnecessary injury.
