Return of equipment

When you're done climbing, go down the city stairs to the park and hand your gear back to the guide.


Dress according to the weather, but remember that it gets hot in the wall on sunny days. Sneakers with good grip work well. You can take a small bag up the wall, or leave the bag at our mobile guide office.
