Peak 17








Peak 17

Climbing tower at the RPTU


Route construction will continue even after the opening. We are looking forward to more cool holds arriving in the next few weeks so that we can build more routes between the 5th and 7th grade. 

Please note:

We have been working hard all winter and spring to get Peak 17 ready for you. You will find more information on ticket purchase, route selection and opening times here on the website in the coming days and weeks.

The grand opening will take place as part of the German Youth Cup (Speed / Lead) from June 7 to 9, 2024. You can find the Programm of DJC here.

We will start climbing on June 12, 2024 from 5 pm. 


Welcome to the heart of the vertical! We are delighted to welcome you to the official website of the Peak 17 climbing tower.
With its 17 meters, the tower is enthroned in the middle of the Pfalz sports center on the sports grounds of the RPTU Kaiserslautern. Peak 17 is a cooperation project between the DAV Landesverband Rheinland-Pfalz, the Rheinland-Pfälzische Technische Universität Kaiserslautern-Landau and the Heinrich-Heine-Gymnasium Kaiserslautern.  The climbing tower offers a variety of routes and walls for all levels of amateur and competitive sport. From the 3rd to the 11th UIAA level of difficulty, we have a wide range of climbing routes ready for you.
We offer a diverse range of climbing routes on a climbing area of approx. 650m² with 26 deflection points. So what are you waiting for? 

Please note that there may be closures during certain events such as competitions.
