Top 10 Rock Climbing Spots

Rock Climbing has some of the most beautiful scenes you could ever imagine. Rock Climbers go to death-defying lengths to get a view of this scenery so let's take a look at some of these places. At Kidzworld we have the upmost respect for these athletes, so let's honour the Top 10 Spots For Rock Climbing!

No. 10: Agulha do Diablo (The Devil's Needle)

Agulha do Diablo is in Serra dos Órgãos National Park, Brazil. This place would be higher on the list if there weren't so many clouds.

No. 9: El Capitan

Crazy Californians are well known to tackle the face of this beast every day in Yosemite National Park. It was named after a Indian Chief who probably became Chief after climbing this massive rock. The 3,000 piece of smooth Granite is a treat for rock climbers who want to conquer something nice a quick.

No. 8: Spider Rock

Spider Rock is located in the Canyon de Chelly of Arizona. It was named after the home of an old Navajo Indian mythical woman named "Grandmother Spider" who's legend was that she created the stars in the sky from the dew on her web that she spun and threw up into the heavens. As the web entered outspace, they settled there to become stars. WOOHOO!!! Let's go climb this!!!

No. 7: Dead Horse Point

Dead Horse Point is in Utah and named after the fact that horses have a difficult time getting through this canyon. Rock Climbers make it out here now all the time with their SUVs so no worries!

No. 6: Kalymnos Island

In the Greek Islands, there are some rocks that shape amazing upside down slopes that pro rock climbers drool over. Greece is one of the most beautiful countries in the World full of Ocean scenery so if you like Sunsets, this is the place to climb!

No. 5: Mount Roraima

At the border of Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana there is a mountain 31 km high with a ledge that attracts rock climbers like a magnet. There is only one way up this mountain and it's 90 degrees straight up.

No.4: Paarl Rock

Paarl Rock is in South Africa and it kinda looks like a pebble that some huge Alien threw at Earth as he was passing by in their mothership. It's slick marble like   walls make this one of the biggest challenges for Rock Climbers.

No. 3: Indian Creek

Indian Creek is located in Utah and it has some of the deadliest crevices in the World. Aron Ralston became famous after his solo-hiking through these cracks in the rocks. One time, he fell and got trapped and he had to saw off his own arm to get out. You can watch a movie called "127 Hours" to witness his story.

No. 2: Skaha Climbing Bluffs

The Skaha Climbing Bluffs are located in British Columbia Canada. The scenery is full of green trees and waterfalls. Cool eh?

No 1: The Matterhorn

Anyone who's been to Disneyland knew this was coming. The Matterhorn is a famous rock in the Swiss Alps, and it's so majestic that Disneyland decided to make a little version of it with a huge roller coaster. If you don't have the courage to climb the actual Matterhorn in Switzerland, then get on the rollercoaster at Disneyland to get a taste of what you're missing.
