Climbing is one of the best communal and physical activities you can do. No matter your age, build or ability, it’s an accessible sport with numerous benefits. In an encouraging environment, you’ll enjoy a full-body, low-impact workout that improves strength, flexibility and endurance. Climbing also increases presence of mind, relieves stress, and builds confidence, cooperation and problem solving skills. The mental health benefits are reason alone to get on the wall.
