Book Clip 'N Climb

Climbing Stories: Meet Linda

I have developed a great bunch of friends at summit up, who climb both indoors and out with me.

My first experience of climbing was over 30 years ago with the youth service in my 20s, I thought it was a cool fun activity, but not very accessible to a working class woman.

I returned to the sport 30 years later when I was trying to fined a new sport that would keep me fit, strong and flexible, was challenging and that I could do outside as well as in.

With the opening of climbing walls, in particular summit up, climbing is now accessible.

I have developed a great bunch of friends at summit up, who climb both indoors and out with me. My family come climbing. My son has become very good at bouldering and he goes to the wall more than me now.

Also my grandchildren love it. They also love the clip and climb and children play section too.

It has become such a big part of my life that I even had my 60th birthday party there!
