Bouldering - the new trend sport in the outdoor sector. Have you wanted to try it out for a while? Then our taster course, together with other Heartbeats, is the right thing for you. Wolfgang Antz, a qualified mountain guide, will accompany you on your first climbing attempts on the bouldering rocks in Saas-Fee, which are well suited for beginners. There are few prerequisites for bouldering; as you climb without a rope and always at jumping height, you don't need to have an absolute head for heights. You've been bouldering before, but you're not a pro yet? No problem, sign up anyway; there are boulder climbs with different difficulty levels, and Wolfgang can surely give you some tips.

Equipment: Bouldering mats are provided, climbing shoes can be brought or rented on site. Wolfgang will be happy to answer any questions regarding the event and equipment at antzalpin@yahoo.de
Note: The event will only occur if the weather is good enough!

Afterwards, Markus will help you identify the mushrooms you have found over a cup of coffee and tell you a few other interesting facts about the big wide world of mushrooms, for example: How do you collect mushrooms and how do you prepare them? What mushroom poisons are there, and how can you protect yourself from mushroom poisoning?
