Totem Climbing Ecublens is part of the Totem climbing chain, which includes the following rooms on the Lake Geneva area:
All Totem rooms have a bar, a block room and a yoga room except for Gland which does not have a yoga room.
Totem Escalade Ecublens is housed in a large building that includes:
On the ground floor:
- A large bar with tables
- A large block for adults
- A small block for children and teenagers
- Changing rooms and toilets
- A fitting area for climbing shoes
On the outside:
Bouldering is one of the three disciplines of climbing with speed and lead climbing. It is practiced not encumbered at a maximum height of 4.5 meters. Large mats cushion the falls and each track of the same colour is marked by a specific level of difficulty symbolized by one of Totem’s nine colours.
The climbing walls
The adult climbing room is particularly well designed and spacious. The children’s area is also relatively large and well thought out. It will be suitable for small children to teenagers, which is not the case with Totem Escalade Vevey’s children’s area, which is limited to children up to around 6 years old. The training space is surprisingly small but it is not necessarily important because it is not used by the large mass of amateurs. Totem Escalade Ecublens is the only block in French-speaking Switzerland with Vertic-halle in Valais and Dbloc à Bulle to offer boulders outside and in addition under the cover of a hangar.
