Rock Climbing, adaptive - Twin Cities
This weekly adaptive rock climbing class is for people with disabilities. This is an introduction to indoor climbing using a top-rope climbing style. You’ll be able to challenge yourself at your own pace, achieve new heights and push your own boundaries – in a fun, social and supportive atmosphere.
NOTE: This class is also offered at our Duluth-Northland location.
What it is
Rock climbing is inherently a social activity that encourages like-minded people to come together and form a community sharing experiences, stories, success and challenges. Through rock climbing you can expect to:
- improve health and fitness
- become stronger
- increase flexibility and balance
- employ mental strategies of planning, anticipation and focus.
Who it is for
For youth and adults with disabilities, ages 6 and up in the Twin Cities Metro.
What to expect
Good technique is more important than physical strength when it comes to rock climbing, which makes this a great sport for many. You’ll climb at your own pace and at the level of difficulty that is right for you physically. Athletes will be paired up one on one with a trained volunteer instructor. With climbing you are your own competition - as you master techniques you can increase the difficulty of your climbing route.
