Indoor Climbing is one of the fastest growing activities in Ireland and worldwide with climbing now part of the Olympics. Indoor Climbing quickly captures the imagination of the first time climber as it wonderfully combines a physical activity with problem solving and a deep psychological aspect. It is also highly addictive.
