In order to fully comprehend the advantages of pool wall climbing, or in this instance, rock climbing in a pool setting, you have to first examine the benefits of play.

In the recently expanded 2nd edition of The Science of Play by Dr. Stuart Brown, we learn that "A new science of play has emerged from the explosion of information emerging from the social, psychological, behavioral, and biological sciences. For children and adults, play strengthens the mind and the body, straightening the path toward social competency, emotional stability, physical capability, and success." 

We also learn that there are several benefits to play, including:

  • Trust
  • Empathy
  • Optimism
  • Flexibility
  • Problem Solving
  • Three-dimensional thinking
  • Perseverance
  • Exploration 
  • Emotional resiliency
  • and Cognitive growth, to name a few

These benefits of play, combined with the advantages of rock climbing, go far beyond mere entertainment at a pool. They contribute to a wide range of positive outcomes, including bolstering cardiorespiratory fitness and increasing strength, endurance, and muscle mass. Additionally, they enhance flexibility, balance, and coordination, while also improving memory, problem-solving, and communication skills. Furthermore, they boost confidence, self-esteem, and trust, while fostering a sense of community and social connections.

The benefits are more far-reaching than you probably ever considered! 


Climbing engages your entire body, activating your upper body, core, and lower body muscles as you challenge your pulling strength. It even taps into the power of your fingers and feet. And the best part? You'll be thoroughly enjoying yourself throughout the entire experience. 

With the Kersplash Challenger, you have the power to amplify or diminish the intensity of the climb by adjusting the number of hand holds. For an even greater challenge, try placing some of the hand holds upside down. This will truly push the climbers to their limits!
