Climbing Gyms

Description:

Climbing gyms are entirely dedicated to climbing in all its forms (lead, bouldering and speed), and suitable for all types of climbers (children to adults) irrespective of their aims (fun, fitness or competition) and their ability. They require a high degree of flexibility and versatility so that all types of routes can be set and updated. Diversity and originality are also key factors in attracting large numbers of climbers. Climbing gyms can accommodate a varied audience, from beginner or very young climbers to climbing professionals, at events ranging from birthday parties to official competitions organized by USA Climbing and the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC).
