Rock climbing as a sport started in the United Kingdom in the 60’s. As the sport grew, climbers found it difficult to get a way from work and pursue climbing in the hills on a regular basis. Climbing enthusiasts found it difficult to go far away from the cities after work. Therefore, they improvised methods and attempted the steep corners of the buildings to simulate the rock climbing.
Rock climbing is not very different from mountaineering except
that instead of snow there are rocks involved in this adventure
sport. Rock climbing's most basic features include climbing
a rock face, using only hands, feet and a safety rope.
If you are good at climbing, then you can definitely
try out this sport. But, some rock traverses in certain areas
extend over great lengths and merit championship status. Certain
climbs can often prove gruelling and tough, but the magic
of the surrounding mountains landscapes always keep the spirits
high of a climber.
