Why do you have this outdoor sport climbing?


The earliest climbers were, of course, ancient humans, and conceivably, they jumped at some critical moment to escape predators or enemies, thus completing the sport of climbing.
The earliest human record of climbing was that in 1492 the French king Charles III ordered Domp Julian de Beaupre, the Captain of Montelimar, to climb a limestone tower called Inaccessible, at a height of 304 meters, with simple hooks and ladders, With the experience and skills to summit success. The mountain was later named Mt. Aiguille, the climb was the first ever recorded and used rock climbing event in history. However, hundreds of years later, history has never left a new human record of climbing.

It was not until the mid-seventeenth century that the activities of people climbing the mountains began to be re-recorded. Glacier terrain and snow-capped mountains are challenges that these early climbers take the initiative to meet, and their footprints all over the Alps. In 1850, climbers have developed some simple climbing tools to help them pass the rock walls and some glacier terrain. For example, claw shoes and modified ax and wood ax, these are the predecessors of now crampons and ice axes.

In the Alps, there are others who try not to rely on tools, but to use their bodies to climb the mountains. In 1878 Georg Winkler managed to climb the Vajolet Tower west without any tools. Although Georg Winkler used hooks and shoes have been improved, but he still regarded as a free climbing.
