Sport climbing course

Sport climbing is becoming increasingly popular and is practiced both at a competitive and amateur level, and also as a physical education activity. It is a natural form of rock climbing, that can be practiced both on artificial climbing walls and natural rock faces, along paths specifically equipped with compulsory fall protection anchors fixed to the rock or wall.

Sport climbing paths are far from the most important and renowned climbing routes, but, even so, the climber's body and mind are fully committed to this challenge to themselves. This discipline gets climbers in contact with nature and lays the technical foundation to face the mountain environment.

Sport climbing is an activity particularly suitable for kids, as its educational contents promote a healthy and constructive approach to life.
