SO EASY - ANYONE CAN DO IT!!!
The age range for a rock climber can vary from 9 years – 80 years of age, man or woman. It is an activity which can be enjoyed by most anyone with no prior experience.
The process of rock climbing is relatively straight forward. Two people are all that is needed to ascend a rock face safely. They consist of one person engaging in the activity – the rock climber, and the other person securing the rope system – the belayer. The belayer will always be an experienced rock climber who is knowledgeable in securing the ropes for the climber.
Rock climbing can be very easy or technically difficult depending on the type of terrain that is being climbed. It is the climber’s decision what level of difficulty they wish to take on as a challenge. The level of difficulty, however, has no affect on the level of safety. FAQs
