“Indoor climbing centres were once used by people for training purposes when they didn’t have access to the outdoors, but now are a sport and recreation facility in their own right. They are a much more social alternative to a gym for many people, who have no intention of climbing outside.”
Sport England recently revealed some research that indicated that this highly addictive sport will overtake its traditional outdoor counterpart as the country’s most popular mountaineering activity in 6 to 12 months. The sport as a whole has been on an upwards trend since 2005 – last year mountaineering was one of only four sports to show an increase in participation. Next year the IOC will decide whether ‘sports climbing’ will enter the Olympics in 2020. The Olympic nod would no doubt add to the increased interest in this sport.
