At ACHIEVA CLIMBING our goal is to begin educating young people at an early age, in the experience of rock climbing safely. Some may go on to be great climbers, while others may garner a limited experience in the exercise, which produces multiple benefits.
Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport. It is one that often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility and balance, along with mental control. It can be a dangerous activity and knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialized climbing equipment is crucial for the safe completion of routes. Because of the wide range and variety of rock formations around the world, rock climbing has been separated into several different styles and sub-disciplines.
In rock climbing, style refers to the method of ascending the cliff. There are three main styles of climbing: on-sight, flash, and redpoint. To on-sight a route is to ascend the wall without aid or any foreknowledge. It is considered the way to climb with the most style. Flashing is similar to on-sighting, except that the climber has previous information about the route including talking about the route with other climbers. Redpointing means to make a free ascent of the route after having first tried it.
