There’s nothing quite like conquering a challenge especially when there’s an element of excitement to it, which is why rock climbing is the kind of sport which really gets under your skin and can quickly become a hobby. A rock climbing experience is a perfect way to get started on this exciting sport, with a full introduction to the intricacies of finding a hand or foot hold and the fun of working your way up a rock face and pushing yourself to the limit.
Our one day rock climbing experience is a great opportunity to learn the ropes, both figuratively and literally. You will be outdoors on real rocks and you will have a chance to learn how to set up ‘top ropes’, chose the right kit for and pick a suitable route up the rock face to ensure that you make use of all the newly learned climbing techniques at your fingertips. You will have an experienced instructor who will show you how to scale a rock face and also give you some tips on how to keep yourself in the right frame of mind when you reach the higher parts of the climb – essential lessons for a new climber, or even one who has experience of climbing walls as an outdoor climb is a completely different experience.
As with all Activity Superstore experiences, our rock climbing experience has been health and safety checked to our usual high standards, meaning that even though you might feel a little scared, there is nothing to worry about in terms of your safety. You will have the benefit of all the safety equipment you need to ensure that all you need to be concerned about is whether your nerve will hold.
If you know someone who loves to get outside and take on the challenge of the great outdoors, then a rock climbing experience is a great gift idea. It will give the recipient a real sense of exhilaration and one which may lead to them taking up rock climbing as a lifelong hobby – there certainly is an addictive quality to mastering both the physical skills and mental control needed to triumph over nature, so if you’re looking for a gift for the adventurous type, then you’ve come to the right place.
