Climbing facilities are amenities wholly dedicated to climbing in all its forms (lead, bouldering and speed), and suitable for all types of climbers (children and adults) irrespective of their aims (leisure or competition) and their standard. They require a high degree of flexibility and versatility so that all types of routes can be set and updated. Diversity and originality are also key factors in attracting large numbers of climbers. Climbing facilities can accommodate a very varied audience, from beginner or very young climbers to climbing professionals, at events ranging from birthday parties to official competitions organised by the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC).
