Individuals Impacted

Join our Climbing Teams!

We are creating rock climbing teams all over U.S. to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to promote physical, mental and social skills. The minimum age requirement to participate is 3.

We have practices once a week for 2 hours. We currently have practices at Movement Climbing Gyms, TX in Plano and Grapevine, on Sundays from 10am-12pm and Design District from 8:30-10:30am. We do not have practices on the 3rd Sunday of every month.

We recommend new families to come to our one month free trial. What this will do is, give your family the opportunity to try rock climbing and see if this is a good fit for all of you. 

First time might be hard for some kids since everything is new and overwhelming. Sometimes kids don’t want to wear the harness and climbing shoes and that is totally ok, make sure your child wears close toe shoes and comfortable clothes.

Top Rope

It is a type of climbing on longer walls using a fixed rope. The rope runs from the belayer at the bottom of the direction to an anchor system at the top and backs down to the climber.

Downhill Skiing

Auto Belay

This is an automatic device that takes up slack as the climber climbs the wall and controls the descent, eradicating the need for a belay partner.

Ski Racing


It is all about climbing on shorter walls, without a rope above crash mats.  

Ski Racing
Lead Climbing

It is climbing on longer walls, without a fixed rope. As the climber goes up, they slide the rope into safety equipment connected to the wall.

Benefits of Rock Climbing

This sport pushes the climber to his/her limits and gives them a huge sense of accomplishment. Rock climbing is a low-impact exercise, which means it is easier on the body, particularly the joints, while still being a great full-body workout.
