Can Anyone Climb?
The answer is as simple as switching the first words of the question - anyone can climb. Few other sports & activities are as versatile as climbing when it comes to getting started. It does not matter how old you are, how tall, big, small, young, or athletic you are... there is always a climb that will fit your ability, whatever that might be. There are many starting points in climbing and as you improve you'll never stop finding new challenges to match your progress.I climb because of the constant challenge of balancing the physical and the mental, and that the outcome is decided only by me. Best I can give you without going on about it for hours on end.
Make real friends with Rock Climbing in common
Climbing is an activity enjoyed with others. Ability is seldom a factor - it's the sport itself that bonds climbers together. Solving new problems, conquering new challenges, persevering through defeat - the rewards from climbing are some that anyone can experience. Sharing these experiences with friends is what life is all about.
People who discover climbing seldom have trouble finding others with a common passion for the sport. If climbing is for you, you'll find yourself welcomed into a world of support and friendship wherever you go.

I am 45, not 25 and I don't climb to mantel, dyno, bump or smear. In fact, I'm not even completely sure what those mean. I climb because every time I hit the wall, I see an improvement over the last time I climbed. I may not even make it to the top (and in reality, I often don't) but I don't care. I go home at the end of the night knowing that I pushed myself, I achieved something I hadn't before and I had fun doing it. I climb for me.Sandy M., Burlington, Ontario
