Welcome to the Amber Network - a climbing club for climbers of all levels based in the Nederlands to have fun and get vertical with.
Climbing and related sports are activities with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks, individuals are responsible for their own actions.
Participation in any of the activities listed here is entirely at the participants own risk.
Neither Amsterdam Climbers nor it's representatives are in any way liable for accident or death resulting from any of the activities/events posted here.
It should be noted that Event organisers are not guides nor are they professional instructors, as such it is up to the individual to participate in any activity or not.
Remember you are responsible for your own safety and the safety of your climbing partners. Climbing at indoor gyms and outside on real rock both present serious risks to your safety, physical health, and life.
You have been warned.
In Austria and Germany in particular, climbing as therapy is well-established, with educational courses on the topic, books and even hospitals boasting climbing facilities. I spoke to psychotherapist Alexis Zajetz, based in Thalgau, Austria, to find out more about his work.
