climbing walls over gymnastics pits

I recall when Jim McLuskey told me he was going to build a climbing wall over the pit at Mountain Shadows Gymnastics. Brilliant. This was the first time I had heard of the concept.

But in 2006 kids are no longer allowed to use this climbing wall due to problems with insurance coverage. What a shame.

Other clubs only allow kids to climb very low on a wall.

To me as a coach, it seems a perfect marriage of training equipment.
