Move Up Scholarship

Our company derklettersteiger.de is dedicated to providing help through useful educational material in a climbing industry.

Our mission is to help people who are in a specific niche of this mountain sport – via ferrata (via ferrata refers to a type of a climbing route where there is a steel cable which follows the route fixed in certain points to the rocks).

With constant education and deep information about the equipment people should use(called Klettersteigset), we educate our readers how to safely climb and hike the mountains and show relevant outdoor gear (like a Rettungsmesser)to friends of being out in the nature.

As our main focus is providing security information and educational material in a field of an extreme sport such as climbing, we prefer extreme sports among all other sports. That’s why we have established an annual student’s scholarship under the name „Move Up“ and every year we reward the best essay on a topic connected with extreme sports or climbing.
