How to Make Your Climbing Wall Extra Kid Friendly

Most of our climbing walls are inherently kid friendly because we make most of them for kids. They have bright-colored hand holds and dynamic surfaces that allow for a variety of climbing experiences. However, if you want to make your climbing wall extra kid friendly, consider adding some of these unique accessories.

Loop Holds offer an alternative to the other hand holds on the climbing wall. They feature a large ring, or loop, that is fastened to the climbing wall but still free to slightly move. It can be easier to grasp than some of the other holds, providing a nice alternative for inexperienced or hesitant climbers. It’s also attractive to confident climbers because it has a Ninja vibe to it. Sold in sets of six and includes an activity guide.
