In the last decade, the sport of rock climbing, once only seen as an extreme sport for outdoors, has become mainstream sport and has grown in numbers annually. Also, the popularity of indoor rock climbing has increased too and not only athletes can do it but ordinary people looking for a physical and mental challenge… even kids looking for a fun sport to do. Whether you are a seasoned outdoor athlete or somebody looking for a workout that is fun also, outdoor and indoor climbing both have different challenges. A rock climbing center has different levels just like outdoor rock climbing. Both indoor and outdoor facilities have different levels of climbing involving strength, flexibility, power and endurance. Indoor rock climbing can help you in outdoor rock climbing also, as indoor is available when the weather makes the outdoor pursuits inaccessible during the winter months.
