Strive to do your best while learning to support others. We use our 32 foot accessible climbing wall wall as a way to help students become aware of the nature of trust, to teach students how to give and receive effective support and how to honour and respect the efforts of each team member. Students also become aware of “edgework”, how personal striving and challenge makes each of us more effective members of a team. The wall is designed so even those with limited mobility or in a wheelchair can participate.

Our new climbing wall features ‘bump-outs’, so instead of climbing straight up, these features require a climber to negotiate uneven space creating greater challenge. As well, the wall has three climbing routes instead of two, allowing more participants to climb. The cargo net and hanging ladders test balance and hand-eye coordination and confront the climber with the need to manage motion.
