Indoor climbing synthesises the experience of standard rock climbing, with participants attempting to navigate their way up an artificial wall. The walls themselves are becoming increasingly complex, creating a more realistic simulation of what itês like to go climbing outdoors. With unpredictable weather conditions or long journeys required to find suitable cliff faces, standard rock climbing has always been a little inaccessible and daunting. Indoor climbing offers a simple and safe introduction to rock climbing, and has worked wonders in bringing new participants to the sport as a whole. .
