Let's build a rope climbing gym to Ronimistehas!

Ronimistehas is the home of climbing in Tartu. Our mission has always been to be more than just a place for climbing. We want to be an environment, where our community members feel like at home. This has created a unique synergy with the local climbing community, which has brought us in less than 3 years to where we are now – ready for the next challenge: to build the first lead climbing in Estonia, nextdoor to our existing bouldering gym. This project will make Ronimistehas the most advanced climbing facility in Estonia.

The project in numbers:

  • Total budget: 335 000

  • Expected completion time: January 2024

  • Height of the climbing walls: 12 meters

  • 500 square meters of climbing wall

  • 30 climbing routes
