New participation figures published by Sport England suggest that participation in climbing, hillwalking and mountaineering is increasing.
The figures come from the Active People Survey 4 that is published today. They show that we are one of only 4 on the Sport England list that are actually showing an increase.
Participation is defined as the number of adults (age 16 plus) who have taken part in the sport at moderate intensity for 30 minutes or more at least once in the last week (at least four days out of the previous 28 days).
Climbing & mountaineering include the following activities: climbing indoors, climbing rock, mountaineering, mountaineering high altitude, hill trekking, hill walking, bouldering, mountain walking.
