A Smart Alternative

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.

Most of the climbing in modern times is considered free climbing.  Climbing using one’s own physical strength, with equipment used solely as protection and not as support—as opposed to aid climbing, the gear-dependent form of climbing that was dominant in the sport’s earlier days. Free climbing is typically divided into several styles that differ from one another depending on the choice of equipment used and the configurations of their belay, rope and anchor systems.

A variety of specialized climbing techniques and climbing equipment is provided to ensure safety. Climbers will usually work in pairs and utilize a system of ropes and anchors designed to catch falls. Ropes and anchors can be configured in different ways to suit many styles of climbing, and roped climbing is thus divided into further sub-types that vary based on how their belay systems are set up. Generally speaking, beginners will start with top roping and/or easy bouldering and work their way up to lead climbing and beyond.

A climbing wall is an artificially constructed wall with grips for hands and feet. The material most often used is a thick multiplex board with holes drilled into it. Recently, manufactured steel and aluminum have also been used. The wall has places to attach belay ropes, but may also be used to practice lead climbing or bouldering.

Each hole contains a specially formed t-nut to allow modular climbing holds to be screwed onto the wall. With manufactured steel or aluminum walls, an engineered industrial fastener is used to secure climbing holds. The face of the multiplex board climbing surface is covered with textured polyurethane, then loaded with sand. In addition to the textured surface and hand holds, the wall contains surface structures with incuts and protrusions, (bulges). This way the area on the mobile rockwall can take the form of an overhang, underhang or crack.

Some grips are formed to mimic the conditions of outdoor rock, including some that are oversized and can have other grips bolted onto them. Bolt-on holds are fixed to the wall with iron bolts inserted through the hold. These have specific bolt points, and are fixed into pre-allocated screw-threaded holes in the wall. Screw-on holds are, by contrast, usually much smaller. These holds are connected to the wall by screws which may be fastened anywhere on the wall’s surface.
