Each climbing route is like a puzzle, which requires patience, planning and analysis to complete. Beginners will typically work out their ascent as they go up, but with experience they learn to visualise their climb and spot tricky sections before reaching for their first hold.

Over time, regular wall climbing can help develop concentration, determination and problem-solving skills. As you improve, you will naturally want to push yourself further and try harder climbs or climb outdoors.

The amount of goals students can set is limitless. Setting  goals and meeting them gives them a great sense of achievement, which in turn can help build everyday self-confidence.

While on one level wall climbing is an individual pursuit, it also has a very social component because student are never alone (or shouldn’t be). They either be climbing with a group of students. They tend to develop strong friendships with their climbing partners due to the level of trust involved and through sharing challenges and experiences.
