Benefits of rock climbing


You don’t need to be super-fit to rock climb. Good technique is more important than physical strength.  The more you climb the stronger and fitter you will become. Good footwork, body positioning and problem solving will get you up many more climbs than just brute strength. Climbing uses lots of muscle groups, both in the upper and lower body. Your back, abdominal and leg muscles all get exercised as well as your fingers, shoulders and arms.

Regular climbing can improve stamina as well as muscle strength. In addition, all the reaching and stretching for holds improves flexibility and agility. Each climbing route is like a puzzle, which requires patience, planning and analysis to complete. Over time, regular rock climbing can help develop concentration, determination and problem-solving skills. As you improve, you will naturally want to push yourself further and try harder climbs or climb outdoors. Did you know the University has a Mountaineering Club that coordinates outdoor climbs?

The amount of goals you can set yourself is limitless. Setting yourself goals and meeting them gives you a great sense of achievement, which in turn can help build everyday self-confidence.

The Forum can offer:

  • Individual climbing tuition
  • Specialised climbing classes
  • Group bookings for schools, scouts, sporting teams and corporate groups
  • Team building sessions for Corporate Activity days
  • The wall is open to children aged eight and above (14 or older to belay)
