In rock climbing, you climb up, down and across natural or artificial rock walls, aiming to get to the top or endpoint without falling. The sport has a reputation as being for thrill seekers only.
While it certainly is thrilling, it is an activity that most people can enjoy if they like a challenge. And the great plus is that it offers a huge range of mental and physical health benefits.
Rock climbing demands that your mind becomes calm and focused. It increases cardiorespiratory fitness as it involves lots of pulling, pushing and lifting. It helps build muscle strength and acts as a full-body exercise.
Because of the specific demands of rock climbing, where you are stretching, pushing and contorting, your flexibility, co-ordination and balance are improved. It helps enhance memory and problem solving while boosting the communication skills that are essential to your safety.
Like other forms of climbing, it helps build community, de-stress and combat low mood.
