Rock climbing is a very interesting sport that builds not only your body but also your character.
With proper guidance and safety, it’s a sport that you should try at least once in your life. Trust me, it’s worth it!
1. Rock climbing is a sport that almost anyone can do.
Its difficulty level can be adjusted to suit children, people with special needs and almost anyone else for that matter.
2. It’s such a great workout!
Not only is rock climbing a cardio wonder, but with regular practice it builds stamina, lean muscles and pumps up your flexibility.
3. Climbing is not only a physical exercise, but a mental one as well.
It keeps your mind sharp and your agility even sharper, and it will transform you inside and out!
4. It’s a great stress reliever.
It helps you focus on the moment, and once you hit that marker you’ve been reaching for, it’s just pure bliss.
5. It boosts your confidence.
Seriously, rock climbing is like a gold medal for your ego. It takes a lot of courage and strength to get up a mountain. Or even a 20 foot wall..
6. It teaches you patience.
Climbing can be really frustrating for people who need things done instantly. You may not get up that wall the first time, but with practice you learn to be patient until you get there.
7. It builds trust
Climbing doesn’t only build trust in your climbing partner, but also in yourself. You learn to trust your instincts and reach for the rocks that you know will get you to the top.
8. It’s fun!
There’s nothing like climbing a wall of colored rocks with a bunch of adrenaline-loving adventurers that just make your day.
9. The scenery is breathtaking.
When you get into it, you will eventually go climbing outdoors and in other countries. When you do, you’ll appreciate nature like you never have before.
