Specially designed for children, Climbing Wall of Children is a flexible indoor sports equipment that can be adapted to different preferences and difficulty levels. Traditionally, the climbing holds of rock climbing walls are fixed. This new system of rock climbing equipment allows the climbing holds to be readjusted and securely fixed to allows for variances in the climbing route. To set up the wall, simply stretch and extend the folds upwards. When not in use, the wall can be collapsed and easily kept into a box, which becomes a seating furniture. With a small footprint, this climbing wall can fit into indoor spaces, home and playgrounds of different sizes. The convex part of the wall is modular and can be freely disassembled and fixed to form different climbing experiences or to suit different rock climbing needs. The most important feature of the climbing wall is to design the surface of the wall as a modular unit. To ensure children’s safety, an inflated air cushion at the base forms a protective pad to cushion any fall. Rock climbing is an effective way to improve children's motor skills and improve their physical strength. As the difficulty of climbing walls is adjusted, it slowly encourages children to build endurance and confidence.
