Adaptive Climbing at Lindseth Climbing Center
Making indoor rock climbing accessible to people with physical and mental disabilities
Indoor rock climbing is a fitness activity that challenges people both physically and mentally. Currently, there is a blossoming national movement to make climbing accessible to people with physical and mental disabilities, and Cornell’s climbing wall staff are getting trained on techniques and systems to adapt the Lindseth Climbing Center to serve disabled climbers. With support from this grant, staff are hosting free monthly Adaptive Climbing events to introduce the benefits of climbing to members of the Cornell community and beyond.
