ClimbUp (Official Press Release) – changing lives for the better through climbing

New Bristol based charity kicks off with great promise. ClimbUp Bristol is an idea inspired by a group of local climbers to give young people in danger of social exclusion a route back into mainstream life.

Visit us at @ www.climbup.org.uk

The charity offers students one to one mentoring from an experienced climber, the simple aim being to offer the young person a new life passion, a new peer group and a new set of values.
Anyone involved with climbing or bouldering will tell you that this is one of the positive side effects of the sport, with its focus on trust, physical strength and mental endeavour.
Bristol is the ideal city to open this new venture. It has recently become the foremost city in the UK for the sport of climbing, there are now four purpose-built indoor centers and the area is surrounded by natural cliffs such as Cheddar gorge and the Avon gorge.
The aim of ClimbUp Bristol is to be completely life changing for few individuals rather than giving lip service to everyone.
