Climbing Walls

Sport Climbing is the fastest growing adventure sport in India. It is an official sport in the Asian Games and is an official sport in Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games and in 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Children are natural climbers and unlike many other sports, no one is singled out in any climbing activity. Success is measured and controlled by setting attainable goals. Climbers are challenged only by themselves and the obstacles before them. Lionel Terray, one of the most renowned climbers of this century, is right when he said that it is the climber who best understands value of life. It is not just a question of developing a couple of motor skills, although that happens naturally as well.
