As any parent knows, children love to climb. They will scramble up anything from the couch to a tree trunk and the riskier the better! as they see it as fun.
Climbing has gained popularity and there have been improvements in the manufacture of climbing structures and equipment. Therefore accessibility and safety whilst performing a climb have also improved over the years, this has become a popular sport with widespread appeal across all age groups and skill levels.
