teaching safe rope climb

by site editor Rick McCharles

Rope climb is a wonderful activity.

But one of the biggest mistakes I see in gyms is coaches putting young kids up high on ropes too soon. … We’ve all heard of or seen children falling.

Climbing high is not necessary nor efficient for fun and fitness.

I was compelled to put together a video of how to introduce children to rope climb. Without putting them into a situation where a small mistake could be a big injury.
