Few things in this world can teach about ourselves as comprehensively and succinctly as rock climbing. You won’t find a climber on Earth who can’t give a litany of benefits he or she gets from the sport—starting with an amazing amount of fun and getting progressively deeper from there. Self confidence, self awareness and physical, mental and emotional maturity are all common benefits from climbing. Who needs that more than kids and teens? Climbing also tends to be a social activity that encourages interaction with ones peers. It’s the total package!
