Students must use upper- and lower-body strength to traverse upside down from one end to the other on this horizontal climbing net structure. Steel construction makes it extremely durable.
Full-Body Climbing Challenge
Unlike vertical climbing ropes that require primarily upper-body strength, this horizontal climber requires use of both upper- and lower-body to get across it. Use arms to support the weight of your body against gravity and hook legs through the mesh for extra support. With each pull forward, students have to evenly distribute their weight, coordinate full-body movement, and overcome the instability of the rope net.
While this climbing net may be more strenuous, it is a safer option compared to vertical climbing. Students are only inches off of the ground at all times, meaning any fall is a short one and the potential for injury on impact is minimal. It's recommended to have at least a 2" thick foam mat underneath.
Made of steel and aluminum, the frame features a powder-coated finish for added durability and resistance to scratching, chipping, or fading. The frame and net together hold up to 250 lb. It measures 10'L x 5'W x 32"H; 125 lb. Truck delivery.
