Designed for children ages 5-12, The Rope Climb is a simple fitness activity which challenges kids to climb a vertical rope. This provides great exercise for arms, legs, and core muscles. The rope is roughly 8 feet tall after installation, making it a reasonably difficult, but still surmountable, challenge. This is a safe height which will leave kids ready to try again, rather than exhausted, after they reach the top. The bottom end of the rope is fastened to the ground, which keeps it stable while it is being climbed. This also prevents kids from swinging into the post and hurting themselves. An extension at the top of the post also places it a few feet away from the rope to allow plenty of room. The galvanized zinc post can be left unpainted, or given a weatherproof powder coat of paint. A spectrum of colors are available to choose from.
