Modern indoor climbing walls feature a variety of surfaces at differing angles, far from the original concept of a single wall. Authentic textured holds are combined to create routes and colour-coded to create different routes of varying difficulty. Individual ropes secured via the top of the wall allow climbing in complete safety.
Holds can be relocated to refresh available routes as required. Instructors hold site specific qualifications in coaching and of course safety.
Purpose built climbing walls provide an excellent environment for enjoyable and demanding exercise, they are suitable for virtually all ages and abilities, any gender and aptitude. Indoor climbing develops fitness, coordination and flexibility, creates confidence and encourages teamwork, but does not require a particular entry level of fitness or strength. It is particularly suited to those for whom traditional sports have less appeal.
