  1. Climbing

    Climbing is the activity of using one's hands and feet to ascend a steep object. It is done both for recreation and professionally, as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure, or military operations. Climbing can be done in the outside world or inside via man-made structures. Climbing activities include: ⁕Bouldering: Ascending boulders or small outcrops, often with climbing shoes and a chalk bag or bucket. Usually, instead of using a safety rope from above, injury is avoided using a crash pad and a human spotter. ⁕Buildering: Climbing urban structures - usually without equipment - avoiding normal means of ascent, like stairs, escalators, and elevators. Aspects of buildering can be seen in the art of movement known as Parkour. ⁕Canyoning: Climbing along canyons for sport or recreation. ⁕Chalk climbing: cliffs of chalk may be climbed using some of the same techniques as ice climbing. ⁕Competition Climbing: A formal, competitive sport of recent origins, normally practiced on artificial walls that resemble natural rock formations. The International Federation of Sport Climbing is the official organization governing competition climbing worldwide and is recognized by the IOC and GAISF and is a member of the International World Games Association. Competition Climbing has three major disciplines: Lead, Bouldering and Speed.
