Totem Climbing Vevey
Totem escalade Vevey is a two-level room created in 2018 in the heart of Vevey, a few steps from Nestlé’s headquarters. It is part of a climbing wall chain including the rooms of Versoix, Gland and Ecublens and is only dedicated to bouldering, i. e. climbing without belaying to a maximum height of 4.5 metres with thick and flexible mattresses to cushion a possible fall.
Paid parking in Vevey city.
Totem Climbing Vevey has two levels:
- A bar with a small restaurant at the entrance.
- Shoe rental.
- A bouldering area for teenagers and adults.
- A small dedicated bouldering area for children up to 6 years old.
- A training area and a yoga room.
- A moonboard
- An area dedicated to weight training.
- Changing rooms and some tables and chairs.
There is a total of 400 m2 of climbing surface for 120 regularly renewed routes with a floor area of about 700m2. Each track has sockets of the same color and the level of difficulty is indicated by a small color label on a socket at the bottom of each track.
