Duo pass offer: 2 months of climbing with a great discount!

In honour of the upcoming Valentine's Day, we have a great Duo pass offer: 2 months of climbing for 136€ (norm. 150€) !!!

Love and friendships are too important to be celebrated only one day a year - so let's enjoy it properly! The Duo Pass aka two months of climbing, works either so that you and a friend buy the Duo Pass together and get one month each, in which case the monthly price will be 68€ per person OR you can also buy yourself two months of climbing in a row. You can also get the card as Premium for 160€ / 2 months (instead of paying 178€).

The offer is valid until the end of February! Even if your current monthly card is still valid, you can also buy a Duo Pass in advance and continue to use your monthly card at cheaper prices after the current card expires. Only available at the shops.

Renovation works in Herttoniemi 19.2. - 22.2. - one wall out of use

The slab of BK Herttoniemi will soon have a new look and feel to it! The walls H+I will be renovated starting on Monday 19.2. and the wall will be available again for climbing on Thursday 22.2. after routesetting.

Renovating the wall improves the climbing experience and makes climbing safer! The renovation work may cause some noise. Apologies for any inconvenience. However, the other walls are in use as usual and the gym is open as usual!
