Sports climbing will become an official event at the Olympics in 2020.
I'm looking forward to seeing it because I used to do sports climbing, even though it was only for a short time.
The top of the wall is quite high, and it's scary since my safety depends on a partner! While I'm climbing, my partner who is belaying me holds the rope and adjusts it as appropriate. If the rope is too loose if I fall off, I can bang against the wall violently or even hit the ground. Also, walls which are angled outward so that they have an overhang require huge power to successfully climb.
However, I could get the feeling of accomplishment after climbing to the top, so it was fun.
