    Rock climbing is a physical, challenging activity, which can be done outdoors or at an indoor wall. Indoors, climbers follow a series of marked holds or routes, which are set at varying difficulties. Not keen on heights or want to start without the ropes? Bouldering allows climbers to develop their skills on lower walls with crash mats, just a few metres off the ground, without having to use ropes.
