Conquer your fears and climb into the sky
WE'VE seen the photos of grannies jumping out of planes to celebrate their 80th birthdays and wondered if we'd have the courage to do something similar.
While sky jumping is very drastic, climbing in general, in the safety of professionals, is another matter altogether and achievable for adventurous seniors.
The team behind Sky Zone Trampoline Park has introduced Sky Climb, high and safe climbing walls and obstacles with 21 different challenges.
If you feel daring enough to celebrate an important senior birthday with a climbing challenge, or if you are just into challenging yourself for no reason, it's something to think about.
There's 13 walls and all climbers are welcomed by the fully trained team. Safety harnesses are clipped and then it's up to the climber. Whether it's a first ascent or one of many - the thrill never goes; and if someone is climbing solo, the auto-belay braking system takes perfect care of all safeties.
WHO CAN CLIMB:
Anyone. Well, there is a height and age minimum of 110cm and five years old. Apart from that, anyone can climb, from the most experienced Everest-toppers, to people whose idea of climbing is taking a step up into the pantry.
