Indoor climbing

31st May 1996 at 01:00
Are your pupils climbing the walls? If so, a West Yorkshire company can give them a foot up. DR Climbing Walls installs indoor artificial walls as an alternative to natural rock, to help develop rock climbing techniques and skills for national curriculum adventure activities. Prescot School in Merseyside has added an indoor wall to the sporting facilities for its 780 pupils. At the top is an overhanging arete, sculpted to give an authentic rock-like appearance and full of pockets and fissures.

Schools can also obtain a passageway that leads from the top of an easy section of wall to a "sentry box" giving access to a free abseil point for the most inexperienced climbers. DR Climbing Walls, tel: 0113 284 2369.
