The Globe Ice Wall The Hague Reviews
Ice cold climbing Mar 22, 2009
The Globe is an indoor ice wall for climbing. The temperature lies between -10 and -20 degrees celcius. Pretty cold.
Ice climbing is quite different from normal rock climbing. The technic and gear are a little different. You need crampons, ice axes, a helmet and D-shoes.
When you go climbing in The Globe you can rent all the gear: shoes (european sizes 37-47), crampons, soft shell jacket (S-XXL), helmet, gloves and ice axes. You can bring your own gear, but you need to let it have a check.
The minimum age is 14. Climbing time is half an hour. Maximum four people at the same time.
There is an instructor to help you out with all the gear and the climbing. English is not a problem. This is well organised. It's professional. They take care of the safety rules.
25 euros for one-five people including gear
17,50 euros for six or more people incl gear
17,50 euros if you bring your own gear
The Globe has some specials for team events or school trips. More info about that on the website. It's advised to make a reservation on time.
Pics will be uploaded soon!
