HISTORY

historia Gran Pared, muro de escalada

In 2003, the partners of Gran Pared met, with the idea of ​​filling the void of a good climbing wall in Bogotá, which would be at the height of the walls of the United States and Europe and we began to plan this dream, with the objective of providing every day to a greater number of people, the opportunity to know and enjoy safely and comfortably the benefits of climbing, which is not only a great physical exercise but also increases confidence in our own abilities to face challenges , since it invites us to set higher goals every day and to strive to achieve them.

In 2004 we opened our Climbing Wall in Bogotá offering sports and recreational equipment to provide a safe environment and with motivating routes of all levels of difficulty. In May 2006 we held the 1st Open National Climbing Championship and until 2014 we had held 9 National Championships in the Difficulty mode, 5 in the Boulder mode and several children’s championships in both categories.

In December 2010, our second line of business was created, to give training courses on safety work at height for industrial safety, having trained more than 2000 employees from different companies.

In March 2015 we had to close the climbing wall and because of that, a month later we decided to also close our training center for work at height, in order to redirect our resources to get a place to build our wall again.

On December 15, 2017 we opened again to the public at Calle 52 # 15-27. Our new wall has a climbing area of ​​more than 500 square meters, 11 lines with 24 “tip” routes, for experienced climbers, 14 “yoyo” lines with 30 routes for new generations who want to enter the world of climbing. and 4 lines with 8 mixed routes that can be done both in “yoyo” and “lead”.

In March 2020 we closed our climbing wall due to covid-19 and in November we opened again with all the biosecurity protocols and a new Boulder service. We offer our clients a stable place to enjoy this magnificent sport with safety and good service, thus consolidating our dreams, overcoming difficulties and escalating our own challenges as a company.
