18-19 October 2019

The 4th edition of the Petzl RopeTrip® Series Switzerland will take place 18th and 19th of October 2019 at Altimum SA, the Petzl Swiss Agency, in Palézieux.


As for the previous editions, we invite 10 teams to compete against each other during 5 different challenges.
The teams, composed by 3 rope access technicians and one substitute, will have to be fast, precise and persistent to reach the best result.


This year, the Petzl RopeTrip® Serie Switzerland takes place for two days.
The event starts already on Friday afternoon with the check of the equipment and the distribution of the bibs. After passing that step the teams get ready for the "Speed" challenge. Saturday consists of demanding exercises in great heights, which are not only technical, but also ask a certain reflection.
After the final, late in the afternoon, we’ll be able to crown the winner team of the Serie Switzerland 2019.


Spectators are heartly welcome to this event.
Dive deep into the breathtaking world of verticality and be amazed by the technical skills of the rope technicians.


In the evening, all participants as well as the audience are invited to finish the day in a friendly atmosphere accompanied by a rich buffet and fresh drinks.


Altimum SA provides some rooms in its brand new B&B.
The room (one per team) costs CHF 80.- per night.
Attention, the rooms are highly demanded and limited, so you better don’t wait too long and register as fast as possible.
There will be also some space for camper vans, if needed.

In the morning, everyone has the possibility to take a fresh shower and to strengthen yourself with a nice breakfast.


Please register if you want to take part at the evening buffet.
We kindly ask CHF 10.- additional per participant. - The participation fee rests at CHF 100.- per team, as during the previous years.
We're looking forward to this week-end which will be for sure rich in memorable times and in interesting discussions!
