The wall may be inside, but that does not mean it is not a challenge. You prefer to go indoor rock climbing rather than scaling cliffs outside because you can do it whenever you want! You no longer have to rely on good weather to challenge yourself to climb to the top.
Indoor climbing walls are becoming an increasingly common feature on cruise ships and at popular resorts around the world. If your upcoming vacation might feature some indoor climbing, you should choose a travel medical policy that will protect you from any sporting accidents you might face. With Atlas Travel® from HCC Medical Insurance Services, you will receive a reliable travel medical insurance that covers indoor rock climbing!
While many insurance companies charge extra to cover extreme sports, Atlas Travel® insurance includes coverage for indoor rock climbing injuries that occur while abroad at no additional charge. We offer several different Atlas Travel plans depending on your destination for indoor rock climbing and how many are in your group. Atlas America® is designed for those whose travel incudes the U.S. or Canada. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., we have Atlas International® insurance. Traveling with a group? If you have 5 or more in your group, you should check out Atlas Group® for a discounted rate!
With the introduction of indoor rock climbing, the sport of rock climbing has grown in popularity. The popularity has been mostly attributed to the accessibility of the indoor facilities. When you no longer have to depend on weather to climb, you are able to climb anytime and anywhere. However, many people assume that because the walls are smaller and because you are indoors it is completely safe. It could be argued that indoor rock climbing is safer, but there are still risks involved.
You should be aware that rock climbing accidents could still happen when indoors, such as slipping, small cuts, and falls. The biggest risk of indoor rock climbing is that some climbers become confident in their skills – too confident. Some climbers think that they can easily transition from indoor to outdoor climbing, but that is not necessarily the case.
There are some major differences between outdoor and indoor climbing, such as weather, grip holds, and height. If you plan on making this transition, make sure you climb with someone experienced in both indoor and outdoor climbing. Luckily, most indoor climbing facilities are certified. They focus on rock climbing safety to make sure that every climber has a fun and safe climb to the top
Whether you are climbing outside or inside, you want to be aware of the grip holds. You want to be able to move your hands and your feet in a way that can support you as you climb. At HCCMIS, we want to act like grip holds for your entire travel experience, which is why we provide Atlas travel insurance which includes benefits like:
