Easter Seals NL’s accessible and inclusive building has a 26’ fully accessible climbing wall that offers a challenge to climbers of all ages and abilities. There are four main routes with varying levels of difficulty.
Easter Seals NL has varying equipment to provide the support each climber needs, whether it be a traditional harness or using a 4:1 belay pack with an easy seat harness. Our trained volunteers can assist climbers so that anyone can ascend the wall and reach their climbing goals. We also have an ascender handle which now allows our climbers to pull themselves up the wall independently.
TA Loeffler, adventurist extraordinaire, has shared her expertise, with program development and trains the volunteer belayers. Adaptive equipment is available for climbers with strong upper body strength but minimum leg strength to climb the wall using a pull-up style ascender.
Our climbing program is delivered weekly on Sundays, this program is broken down into semesters running Fall, Winter, and Spring in 6-10 weeks blocks.
Registration Cost: $5/per week
Our goal is to provide people of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
