Peterson: Rock climbing absent in new rec center plans

Posted

Recreation Centers of Sun City management recently revealed their plans for the Mountain View Center remodel.

What was noticeably absent was a rock climbing wall that was part of the original plan approved by the ad hoc committee and the RCSC Board of Directors more than a year ago.

The sport of indoor rock climbing has been growing rapidly and is an activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It is very safe — there is no danger of falling because of an auto belay device that gently lowers a climber when they wish to descend. Including a rock climbing wall would be a small investment that could result in big returns in regards to attracting new residents.

I believe it is important for Sun City to be relevant and stay “ahead of the curve,” and adding a rock climbing wall will do just that. If you share my concerns please show up at the next  RCSC board meeting and share your thoughts.
