Looking for some excitement this summer, but diving out of a plane is not your cup of tea, consider this. How about wall climbing in the comfort of your own backyard pool? Not only is AquaClimb an unusual backyard pastime, it's a great way to get some exercise too. Combining swimming and rock climbing - who knew? .
With AquaClimb, you won't need to drive to a climbing gym or nearest rock climbing location in order to climb. Just head to the back yard! This popular product is often found in water parks and community pools. In fact, the Penn State University swimming team uses one for strength building.
Water safety experts helped in the design of the product. In order to make sure climbers end up in the water feet first, the wall is angled 10 degrees over the pool. The sides and the base are padded.
The frame is constructed out 304-grade stainless steel, which bolts to your concrete deck. The Wall is constructed out of fiberglass and the rock features are hand-sculpted! The non-slip, gently textured surface has interchangeable handholds too. And when the season is over, just disassemble it.
A variety of models and sizes are available with minimum pool depth requirements. Recommended for children 6 and up, the unit requires a 4-inch thick concrete deck. AquaClimb comes in a variety of fun colors including aqua, blue and deep lime. Other colors can be special ordered. The only bad thing - it doesn't come cheap. Prices start at $6,840 but includes delivery and professional installation.
