Join a certified mountain guide, for a 2 hour knots course at the Sihlhölzli sporting complex in the beautiful Swiss city of Zurich, not far from the Alps where you can put what you've learned into practice.
Learning how to properly tie knots is a crucial part of safe and successful mountaineering. And on this 2 hour knots course, I would like to teach you how to tie the most important basic knots that you will use throughout your mountaineering career. Furthermore, I would like to teach you these skills at the Sihlhölzli sporting complex.
Located in the beautiful Swiss city of Zurich, the Sihlhölzli sporting complex is a large outdoor athletics facility. Perfect for a course of this nature, this is the place where you will learn the knots necessary for future climbs.
The course will begin at 6:30 pm. The knots you will learn to tie during the course include the following.
Mast throw knot
Halfmast throw knot
Double Spenstrike knot
There is no doubt that you will use all of these knots during future climbing trips. And it is imperative that you know how to tie them quickly and properly. Hence why we will practice these knots extensively until you are confident in your ability to tie each one.
Being able to tie basic knots is a vital component to mountaineering. That is why I believe this course is perfect for anybody who wants to start climbing in mountain ranges like the nearby Swiss Alps. So if you would like to learn how to tie those knots, just send me a request.
I also offer a 2 hour course on how to use an avalanche transceiver that also takes place at the Sihlhölzli sporting complex.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
