Isn’t climbing really dangerous?
Climbing may initially seem to be a very dangerous activity, since it involves scaling vertical walls many feet into the air. In reality, climbing is a very accessible sport that can be enjoyed by almost anyone.

That said, there are real safety concerns that come with any vertical sport, and it is important to receive proper instruction on belaying before you get yourself into a dangerous situation.

Anytime you are in doubt, please ASK our staff - they love to offer (frequently unsolicited) advice for any situation.
