The Chalk Effect Climbing Project provides a physical therapy alternative to mental health support.

The classes incorporate yoga, meditation and breathing exercises and are open to a variety of age groups.

“Chalk is based on the understanding of fear.”

Classes aimed at younger climbers provide a chance to make friends and build confidence. The adult groups are more focused on recovery and mental health.

The majority of the classes run at Granite Planet in Penryn, however there is also a male addiction recovery group at the Tide Climbing Centre in Wadebridge, and an ‘Empowering Women’ group in Plymouth.
