10-16 Years: Keen Youth

Our unique Climbing Club for young people.

The idea of the club was conceived after spending years introducing young people to the world of Rock Climbing either at indoor climbing walls or on school adventure residentials. The problem with doing this was the question 'where are the kids that really enjoyed climbing going to go next?'. The only direction to point them in was to their closest climbing wall. There was no climbing club offering to take young people as members due to higher risks, and although the climbing walls do a great job, there was an opportunity to offer young people more.

So it was that KEEN YOUTH was born! An Outdoor focused Climbing Club for young people. The club was created to give young people the chance to develop their climbing and make friends in a more traditional setting. This is exactly what we do. The kids in KEEN YOUTH have the chance to develop traditional climbing skills as well as modern ones, and learn about the history of Rock Climbing. They will also be able to develop environmentally sound ethics and engage in debate with the older generation of climbers on current subjects such as Headpointing and Bolting.

Rock Climbing IS moving forward, but we should make sure the next generation of climbers know where the sport came from.
