Safe Climbing

Ronimisministeerium is Tallinn’s newest indoor sports centre.

 

The rock-climbing centre at Zelluloos is meant for both beginners and more experienced climbers. This is the first centre of its kind in Estonia. It is particularly suitable for bouldering or climbing without safety harnesses.

For safety purposes, the floor has been softened and one must always stick to the rules. Children,14 and under must always be supervised by an adult. “There is no running allowed and we teach beginners how to fall properly”, explained Mariana Mutso, who teaches clients how to climb.

The Ronimisministeerium (or Ministry of Climbing) has rooms like artificial caves. Beginners start from green routes and more experienced climbers can look for the more advanced black routes.

“Climbing is a serious hobby like chess. Being strong is only part of it. I, for example, did one move 70 times before I was successful. The feeling afterwards was great”, explains Mutso about her climbing expereince.

A single entry pass to the Ronimisministeerium costs €6, and €3.50 for those under 14 years of age. Socks are mandatory and if need be, they can be purchased on location for €2. The best attire for climbing is comfortable clothes, which can get dirty with magne- sium powder.
