Weil der Spass dort aufhört, wo er die Natur zerstört

keepwild! climbs

keepwild! is a campaign that promotes rock climbing without fixed bolts and without leaving traces on the rock. In fact, besides the bolted «Plaisir» climbing routes, one also needs unequipped bolt-free climbing routes where climbers have to use their own removable protection to climb. keepwild! promotes a diverse climbing culture in Switzerland! 

Clean climbing is rock climbing using self-placed removable protection instead of fixed bolts. Clean climbing maintains nature immaculate, promotes climbers’ own responsibility and also constitutes one of the last ways to truly experience mountain wilderness.
