What are the qualifications required for route setting?

Since route setters often use ropes or lifts, they must be trained to work at height and in specific route setting techniques to ensure the highest safety standards.

It takes real skill to set good routes. Whether a climbing route is excellent or mediocre hinges on the route setter’s ability to create movement, balance, and the right level of difficulty in line with standard grading systems.

The EP team of qualified and experienced route setters is available to set routes for you or train your staff.

Do you work in a rec center, school or university and would you like to have new climbing routes?

Our teams can come and set up your routes. Our first step will be a short evaluation to get a good understanding about the following:

  • facility layout review
  • user groups
  • ability levels
  • current holds & volumes selection

Many times prior to arrival or as a follow-up after our visit, we may recommend additional holds, volumes, equipment or other items to continue the success of your facility.
