The Challenge

To build a prototype climber, it is important to achieve a light, compact, but stable structure. For this reason, our climber structures are made of aluminum or carbon fiber composites (CFC). Construction of the driving roll or wheel is a key milestone difficulty because it should perform a high number of revolutions per minute and produce a very good grip, to pull the climber up the tether without causing excessive wear.

We are always looking for new students who are interested in this project and would like to develop the concept further. Additionally, we welcome all kinds of support and sponsorship.
