Let Us Help You Get a Climbing Wall: Resources & Support
We are inspired by the many benefits of rock climbing and it’s our mission to get as many people climbing as possible. We know that there are barriers to adding a climbing wall – approval and funding are two big ones. Check out our library of resources that we think will inspire and assist you in your efforts to add climbing to your program.
Resources that Educate
We offer multiple fact sheets on the Learn page of our website. They range from Ten Great Reasons for Building a Climbing Wall to the Benefits of Climbing for Children with Special Needs. We also include many news articles related to climbing and its benefits and videos of how organizations are using their climbing walls. These resources are educational and inspirational. Be sure to review them all.
We also have a library of on-demand webinars. If you are just getting starting in the process, we recommend Climb On! It explores the rationale for adding climbing, including the many benefits it offers. You will receive an overview of the different types of climbing walls available and guidance on how to choose the one that best meets specific needs. You’ll also learn about safety and risk management protocols and some of the exciting activities that can be hosted on a rock wall. It’s 49 minutes long.
Those who are a little further along in the planning process will benefit from our Choosing a Traverse Wall®. This 29-minute webinar includes an overview of our Traverse Walls® and what’s included in our Traverse Wall® Packages. It also provides detailed information about each of our innovative climbing wall panel styles.
Our Educational Climbing Blog is another helpful resource. We post blogs weekly and keep past blog posts on our website. Use the search feature to look for something specific or read these to get a feel for what we bog about: Thinking About Getting a Traverse Wall®? Answers to 5 Frequently Asked Questions, Choosing the Perfect Climbing Wall and Safety Surfacing 101: Choosing the Right Safety Mats.
Videos that Bring Climbing to Life
Our YouTube Channel has many videos of our products and also one about “Why Climbing.” These videos are great to share with stakeholders or to show at meetings since the decision makers may not understand indoor rock climbing. Seeing climbers “in action” is very informative, fun and persuasive.
Resources to Help with Funding
