 Overview of Sport Climbing 

Definition

Artificial Rock Climbing wall is an artificially constructed wall with grips/holds for hands and feet, used for climbing. The concept of the artificial climbing wall began in the UK. The first wall was created in 1964 at Leeds University by Don Robinson, a lecturer in Physical Education and founder of DR Climbing Walls, by inserting pieces of rock into a corridor wall. The first commercial wall was built in Sheffield.

The purpose

Artificial walls were being used for climbing as a quick practice environment for rock climbing, when actual rock was unavailable. Over the years, it has developed into a professional independent sport. Climbing on artificial walls provides a stable and controllable atmosphere and can suit all levels of climbers. Also it is becoming an increasingly popular urban sport that provides many people an opportunity to train for rock climbing activities.

The Climbing Route

In attempting a given climbing route, the climber is only allowed to use grips/holds of the designated color as handholds and footholds and surface structures/textures of the “rock-face” as footholds. The person who has the capability to design a route for climbers is called as route-setter.

Grade of Climbing

The grade (difficulty) of the route is usually a consensus decision between the route setter and the first few people who climb the whole route. There are several standards accepted globally to mark the grade of any climbing route.

Score for Youth in India 

There are 5 zones declared by IMF which participate in national competition. From each zone around 30 climbers (girls, boys, men and women) are selected and recommended for national competition. And after observing a performance of a climber at zonal and national level 3-5 climbers from each category (girls, boys, women and men) in each event (lead climbing, speed climbing and bouldering) are selected for international level. IMF conducts a training cap of all such climbers and recommends capable climbers on Asian and international levels to represent India.

Benefits of Climbing  

  • Improvement in flexibility & Provides high core strength workout
  • Builds muscular endurance
  • Climbing is considered as a dynamic meditation, as focused & swift movements involved in climbing, require calmness and concentration of mind.
  • It is a community sport and helps sensitize caring attitude among the climbing team.
