Rock climbing is not only about strength, it is about body-coordination. You need to look forward and plan your next grip. Ensure three points on the wall at any one time to avoid losing your balance. Does it sounds like growing up in society and facing our own life challenges?
Kang ascending the peak in style ! Our peak belongs to The Rock School at Bedok CC.
While goggling “Rock climbing”, Daddy came across a new term “free soloing”. Let Alex Honnold show you what is No-Sweat !! No gear, no rope, only mind powder and sheer belief !
Quoting from the Rock-team :
We believe that, in a safe and fun environment as well as with the right guidance,
kids and youths could easily reap the benefits of rock-climbing. This includes bringing up their general fitness level and, more importantly, building up their character as they
overcome challenges conquering a wall several times their height.
What’s more, with our free parent-child climbs, kids and their parents may strengthen both bodies and family at the same time too !
Actually, Daddy does not mind cliff-hanging with the kids. Kids will complain tired, “can I come down now?”, but when they reach the peak, their smiles say it all !
Did you know the most difficult task is coming down? Kids need to let go of their HANDS and let the coach glide/walk them down the cliff. Not easy
We recommend that you pop by Mummy Angeline‘s blog to see how her two boys cope
