Climbing Equipment Helmet CLIMBING - WALLS


Big Wall At KendalClimbing Walls
are excellent for the rainy day's in summer and the winter months when daylight is short and cold. Britain was one of the first countries to introduce artificial walls, maybe due to our rainy weather the UK has to endure.

The best climbing walls try to create the many features that you may come across on the crags at various grades.

Climbing walls can be the first contact for many a climber into the sport these day's thus making climbing the fastest growing sport. With the walls the standard of rock climbing has increased, where climbers can train all year round in a safe environment, top-roping, learning new techniques, problem solving, overhangs, traversing training for strength, stamina and muscle endurance.

Competitions are held at the walls for all ages and levels.

Lake District has a number of artificial climbing walls throughout Cumbria which offer various facilities, you are recommended to contact them for further details.

Climbing walls don't teach you how to place and use protection techniques for climbing outdoors on the crags, it is recommended that you seek advice and guidance.

Please Check with Establishment before attending to see if any alterations have been made to the Opening times and the attraction itself. Disclaimer
