Climbing walls are a great place to get started with climbing. With a roof over your head you can climb whatever the weather and they provide a safe, supervised environment to learn in. Climbing walls are also an awesome place to make climbing mates.

On top of this, most good walls also have a training area that’ll give you a real workout.
