Climbing - age 15 years (uteklatring)

klatring Climbing is both physically and mentally challenging, and the feeling of having "defeated" a mountain or a rock face is lovely. Rock climbing is a fitness, nature experience, mental training and troubleshooting packed together.
If you think it seems a bit drastic to grapple with huge mountain like that right away, there are now a bunch of indoor climbing walls to frolic in. To be allowed to climb inside walls must have a "Steep Short "that you take when conducting a steep short-try. With Steep Short has learned climb wit and the necessary technical things to safely climb the wall. Minimum age Steep Short is 13 years. Children under 13 can still climb along with adults. The card will cost as little as possible.

Should we learn to climb out, it is wise to enroll in a Climbing Club. Climbing clubs organize courses in technique and safety. There are usually 15-year age limit for taking basic uteklatrekurs. Climbing clubs often arrange also advanced courses in which one learns to use different wedges (attach to rope in the rock wall) and more advanced technology courses.

Have been reading a bit what is written and commented about skydiving and thought I would right a bit on a lot is said and written. Nr1, the age limit for parachuting in Norway is set on the basis of maturity local master instructor can refuse anyone under 18 and jump because of mental and physical condition, before than starting with fallskerm jumping need than through go courses, either line courses, or AFF course more info about the courses can be found on NLF.no/ FNLF. Then I noticed that it was written that one under 16 has jumped parachute .. This is against Norwegian law and is NOT performed by a Norwegian parachute club. Then there are tandem jumping age limit is still 16 years WHETHER even if you have an experienced jumps on his back that makes all the work, errors still happen and life and will be lost in the future. To all of you who will be skydiver here is a recommendation from an experienced mares take a tandem jump first before you go on a course and believe me there is a reason that this is the toughest you will experience.
