BMC Climbing Wall Essentials DVD

Posted by Rob Adie on 26/06/2011

The BMC Climbing Wall Essentials DVD has all the information you need to start climbing indoors.

There are now climbing walls in almost every town and city across the UK, and huge numbers of people visit them every week. They have the advantage of being totally weatherproof and are easy to get to.

Whether you are an experienced climber who uses a climbing wall for training for the outdoors, a beginner climber visiting the climbing wall for the first time, or an indoor-only climber who uses the wall for keeping fit, meeting friends and competing in friendly competitions, Climbing Wall Essentials shows the skills needed to operate safely and efficiently in an indoor climbing centre.  
 
Although indoor climbing walls may be perceived as a safe environment to learn how to climb and try new techniques, there are still plenty of pitfalls and dangers. The film will show you how to avoid these.
 
Climbing Wall Essentials also details: 
  • warming up
  • improving your technique
  • how to lead climb
  • pushing your grade
  • introducing children to climbing walls
  • entering the world of competition climbing. 
It also looks at how to make that important transition from climbing indoors to climbing outdoors on rock.
 
The information in this DVD is relevant to all climbing walls. But remember, climbing walls are all different. They have different designs and management and consequently different rules and regulations must be adhered to and understood when visiting individual climbing centres.
 
The Climbing Wall Essentials DVD is a must for any enthusiastic indoor climber, no matter what stage they are at in their climbing development. The material on the DVD can be revisited time and time again as a climber progresses and develops.
