Besides increasing strength throughout the body, rock climbing helps develop balance and coordination. With the sport of climbing, kids can improve their endurance and feel an excitement that comes with this unique kind of challenge. At our Ys, kids can safely learn the techniques and skills of climbing on our indoor rock walls.
