Rock Climbing is considered as an extreme sport. Rock climbers go up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls.
There are four styles of rock climbing: aid, free, bouldering, and solo. Aid climbing uses climbing equipment such as ropes and weighing gear. You pull yourself up against the rock and fixed climbing equipment. It’s considered safe because if you lose your grip and fall, the rope system will be able to break your fall. Free climbing is when you climb using one’s skills and strength to ascend. Climbers can use a rope belay system to ensure safety.
Bouldering is a style of low route climbing. Usually, climbers have a spotter that directs them where they can safely move from one rock to another. Solo is a style of climbing where the climbers do not relay on any ropes or belay.
Climbers used specially-designed shoes to ensure they won’t slip during a climb. A typical climbing shoe has little padding. It also has rubber soles, similar to those in hiking boots, that make it easier to stick to surfaces. However, it’s designed to be flexible enough so it can allow the climber to take on the shape of a rock’s surface.
There are also different types of climbing shoes such as velcro, lace-up, and slip-on. Climbers need to find the perfect fit to ensure safety in the activity. They also need to fit tightly without the possibility of falling out of your foot while you’re on the rock. In this case, climbers often stretch out their shoes first before any rock assault.
