Climbing is one of the best all-round fitness sports, burning up to 800 calories for each hour of continuous exercise, but unlike other traditional fitness activities, it is much more social and interactive. So whether you have never tried climbing, always wanted to get involved, or are already climbing but would like to push your grade, learn better technique and make it even more enjoyable, now is the time!
