Il tag sport=climbing indica gli elementi che rappresentano un sito di arrampicata sia naturale (Sito d'arrampicata, sectors, falesia, halls, Cascata di ghiaccio, etc.) che artificiale (climbing walls, Arrampicata indoor etc.)

Please note, that this is a translation of the German version of this page, which aims at mapping climbing sites like climbing areas, sectors, crags/boulders/... and of course halls. It also contains a JOSM-preset.

This scheme should be preferably applied to node nodes for artificial climbing walls. It may be applied to way ways in conjunction with cliffs natural=cliff or for climbing halls with building=yes. The scheme also applies to boulders attached to bedrock natural=rock and free standing boulders natural=stone.

Basic tags

Tag = Value Description
sport=climbing Qui è possibile arrampicare.
name=* Nome della falesia, settore o via, se ne ha uno.
Artificial climbing wall outdoors (Teufelsberg, Berlin)
Artificial climbing wall.
In combination with building=yes or similar it is indoors, otherwise outdoors.

For tower-like structures, man_made=tower and tower:type=climbing can be added.

Stili di arrampicata

Se uno qualsiasi di questi tag non è presente, si da per scontato che il suo valore sia 'no'.

Tag Value Description
climbing:sport=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Sport_climbing (relies on permanent, fixed anchors) is possible.
climbing:boulder=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Bouldering is possible.
climbing:toprope=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Arrampicata con corda dall'alto, Top rope, o Moulinette (approach at the route top and letting the rope down) is possible. Fixed or natural anchors may be placed at the top, but routes may not have protection for leading.
climbing:trad=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Arrampicata Trad (non vi sono ancoraggi fissi, occorre sistemare delle protezioni durante la salita) is possible.
climbing:multipitch=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Sono vie multi tiro multi-pitch.
climbing:ice=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Icefalls or the like enable Ice climbing. In contrast to mixed climbing, no rock climbing is involved here.
climbing:mixed=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> mixed climbing on partially iced rocks is possible.
climbing:deepwater=* yes / no / <Numero di vie> Steeps cliffs with deep enough water below permit Deep-Water-Soloing.

Gradazione vie

Solitamente le singole vie sono gradate in base alla loro difficoltà. Se non sono mappate le singole vie ma piuttosto un settore o una falesia, dobbiamo specificare un intervallo di difficoltà. This scheme takes account of numerous grading systems by including the system's name within the key. The proposal for climbing routes includes common names or acronyms for other grading systems such as "yds_class" for the Yosemite Decimal System class and "hueco" for the V-scale used with bouldering in the United States.

Tag Description
minimum/maximum/average grade according to the UIAA grading system.
minimum/maximum/average grade according to the french grading system.
minimum/maximum/average grade according to the saxon grading system, predominantly used in the Saxon Switzerland, Germany.

Additional information

Tag Value Description
ele=* Average elevation (height above sea level) at the bottom of the routes in meters. This is not the length of a route.

climbing:length:min=* climbing:length:max=*

Average, minimum and maximum length of routes in meters (for other units refer to Units overview).

Please note, that the length of routes may significantly differ from wall height! This values is important for deciding, which rope to take.

  • limestone
  • sandstone
  • granite
  • basalt


For rock climbing this tag describes the kind of rock available. This information is irrelevant for e.g. ice climbing.
  • fragile
  • solid


Quality of the rock/ice.
climbing:bolted=* yes / no / <average bolt distance in meters> Are there fixed anchors? If so, what is their average distance?
  • S
  • N
  • W
  • E
  • NE


Orientation of the rock/wall face. Helps to asses at what hour of the day it might be sunny and how long it takes a wall to get dry after rain.
climbing:summit_log=* yes The climbing feature has a summit log (summit register, de:Gipfelbuch). This tag is clearer in describing the purpose than summit:register=yes.
climbing:routes=* Integer number Number of routes on this crag (if not tagged in the climbing styles).


yes / no Artificial climbing structures can have routes indoor, outdoor or both. In the absence of this tag, outdoor should be assumed default.
website=* URL Official website
url=* URL Unofficial website with useful information like topos
  • Mo-Su 08:00-18:00
  • Sep-May


Artificial walls often have fixed opening hours. For rocks there might be restrictions due to breeding beards, etc.
fee=* yes / no / interval Artificial walls or climbing halls may charge an entrance fee or a membership in a club.
