Traverse Climbing Tunnel

Stedelijk College, a high school located in Eindhoven, had big ideas for their new sports complex. They envisioned a gym in which students would be able to move, using multiple obstacles, from the ground floor to the first without needing to use the stairs. 

The wall next to the sport climbing structure needed an obstacle, and we came up with the idea to build a climbing tunnel in which the students would move horizontally from right to left—a traverse climbing challenge of approximately 19 meters long.

We partnered up with @dionjjvisser, a great designer, maker, philosopher, and above all, a great friend from Eindhoven, and started to build the climbing tunnel in the summer of 2023.

After six weeks of non-stop effort the tunnel was completed and we received our first certificate of safety from Keurmerkinstituut. A proud moment, and voilà: a climbing tunnel ready to be used.

Do you have interesting ideas for climbing structures that are just a little out of the ordinary? Contact us, we’re happy to think along with you. 

Let’s get as many people as possible into climbing!
