    Think its likely to drive them to climbing walls more than outside

    The darwinism is a bit less extreme there of course!

    Sport climbing is quite safe. It's bolt-protected and tends to be steep to overhanging, so if you fall it's in to space and stuff dropping from above goes behind you. Single pitch for the most part means easy to escape if it goes worng.

    Not much point to it at all then. But then synchronised drowning is in there.

    When is beach cricket being included?

    Interestingly I caught the tail end bit on the World Service on this, with talk of some climbing events being filmed live outdoors on actual rock faces, and being shown on massive screens in the stadiums. Other events yes will mostly be on indoor special Olympic standard climbing walls.
