Climbing Walls Fun Facts

The first climbing wall was invented in Great Britain in 1964 by Don Robinson, a physical education professor. Today, climbing walls are growing in popularity, especially in urban areas because climbing walls provide an opportunity for “rock climbing” without having access to actual outdoor rocks and mountains.

These rock walls aren’t all the same. Ask the staff about the different types of walls and the different muscles you utilize when climbing the wall. Experiment with different strategies for getting up the wall.
