Everyone should have a chance to climb

Eldo is spreading the word. Climbing walls
should be accessible.

“A myth we’re working to dispel is that adaptive climbing is just dumbed down normal climbing,” comments Mo Beck, a World Champion adaptive climber. “People often assume that adaptive climbing just needs to be easier. They think an accessible wall would just be easy terrain, and that’s just not true at all. For example, seat climbers campus for 45 feet because they’re so insanely strong.” Adaptive climbing is about allowing people of all ability levels to move around, interact with, and ascend a wall comfortably, regardless of a route’s difficulty.

Accessibility is also about including everyone who may not climbing on the wall. Service dogs, parents with strollers, a friend using a wheelchair, a family member who just comes to cheer and has mobility challenges.
