Sport climbing


The city of climbing of Valence is a sports facility dedicated to the practice of high level climbing. The design and volumes of the walls meet all the requirements of current international competitions and anticipate the development of practice. The practice spaces are composed of two spaces: a 1226m2 bouldering room and a 651m2 difficulty - speed room. All the additional spaces necessary for the optimal functioning of such a complex are present: reception and conviviality spaces (491m²), administrative and service spaces (130m²), cloakroom and sanitary spaces (140m²), premises storage, technical areas, but also some relaxation / relaxation areas including a yoga room of 60m². The heat treatment of the hall provides optimal practice conditions for athletes regardless of the season of the year. The ease of access to Valence, at the heart of the national road and rail infrastructure of the North-South axis and its position between the Alps and Ardèche, is also a major asset of the facility.
