Climbing

Up, up and away!

Kids Climbing is supported and encouraged by:
Climbing is something that is in all of us. As babies, we all would have climbed over things - couches, siblings, pets and of course our exhausted parents! Being something natural to people, climbing has existed forever and the early paintings show Chinese men from 200BC engaging in climbing. Initially it was an important part of travelling across the landscape, but it has evolved from a need to an athletic activity and today you can find a whole load of places to go climbing in the UK, both artificial indoor walls and the outdoor real deal.

Did you know?

In 2011 Will Levendoski managed to climb a ridiculous 29,130 feet in just 24 hours. This is the same as climbing the Statue of Liberty about 90 times, or climbing at the rate of one Eiffel Tower an hour!

3 reasons to get into Climbing

  • Climbing is something all kids have a natural interest in

    Did you ever climb trees or walls as a child Maybe you've even seen your own kids scale a tree like Tarzan! Climbing is something that seems to interest all children from a young age, and they love to climb things. The next step makes sense - get them involved at their nearest climbing club, or take them to the closest climbing wall...they'll love it.

  • Climbing will fuel your kids desire for adventure

    If your kids have an appetite for adventure, then climbing is definitely for them. They could be bouldering indoors just a few feet off the ground, or if they were feeling brave they could tackle a mountain thousands of feet tall!

  • Climbing can be done wherever and whenever

    Climbing is unique in the sense that it can be done pretty much anywhere - all you need are your hands and feet! You could be on a nice woodlands walk, and next thing you know your kids are running off to climb everything they can see! The fact climbing can be done in so many places also keeps it fresh for the kids - they'll never get bored.

I don't regard myself as a cracking good climber. I'm just strong in the back and I have a lot of enthusiasm.
