Paradox Sports is the national leader in adaptive climbing. The Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course is intended for climbing facilitators, guides and instructors who seek to help people of all abilities climb.
This ACI program is designed to prepare leaders in the climbing industry with the “tool-kit” necessary to accommodate climbers of any and all abilities in their programs/facilities. This comprehensive training program will cover the diversity of disability, etiquette, health concerns, technical systems for adaptation, and site and risk management in a single pitch outdoor environment. The expert anecdotes and lessons provided serve adaptive athletes, climbing wall instructors, outdoor guides, physical therapists, and well-being advocates of all types.
Adaptive Climbers: If you are an individual with a disability looking to try out climbing then consider joining the Adaptive Climbing Community Day! We welcome all experience levels and disabilities to join for our free half day climbing event. This is a safe and supportive opportunity for people who have never tried climbing to get on the wall, as well as for experienced adaptive climbers to share insight with the newly trained facilitators about their climbing experiences and about disabilities.
