Without trying to make too much awful puns about how it rocks, rock climbing is an incredibly fun, blood pumping activity that’s ideal for a group of stags who love putting their strength and skill to the test. The basic goal in rock climbing is to scale a surface as fast as possible using your wits, creativity and a range of tiny handholds to clamber onwards and upwards.
Rock climbing is a demanding sport that is all about co-ordination and fitness, which is something to keep in mind when planning out your stag weekend. What we’re saying here is, it might not be the best idea trying to push yourself to vertigo inducing heights after an especially beer-y evening. Trust us, projectile vomit is even worse when it comes from high up.
After a few attempts at conquering the rock climbing walls it’ll come naturally to you and you’ll be scaling surfaces like a monkey. It’s the perfect activity for a group of lads who love their fitness, having a laugh and a little competition. Now, rock climbing might not seem like the most competitive sport out there, but trust us, when you see one of your mates best your time to the top, you’ll be raring to get back on the rock wall.
Depending on where you choose your stag weekend you will either be scaling a natural rock surface or climbing indoors on a purpose-made climbing wall. It is great fun and not for the faint hearted. Because although it can be a dangerous sport you will have all the safety precautions - primarily a helmet and a harness as well as an on-site expert to give you pointers on how best to scale the wall or rock surface. For this activity we recommend wearing clothes that allow for optimum mobility and flexibility (or bring a change of clothes.) If you have purpose built rock climbing shoes then bring them along, if you don’t, then some trainers that you don’t mind getting dirty will do just fine.
If you’re planning to do this activity in fancy dress then make sure it’s safe to use with a harness. We suggest going with the whole climbing theme and having him wear a skin-tight spider man costume. It makes for great photos and the rest of you can dress up as other super heroes or you can just be dressed normally and laugh at the stag as he gets stuck on the rock climbing wall.
The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic and very well organised. The ladies who arranged the bar crawl were fantastic and it was the highlight of the evening!! I would 100% recommend. - Chris Lockwood (Stag Company Trust Pilot)
