Climbing Out is a national charity that works with young people facing life changing injury or illness. We run 5 day residential outdoor activity programmes that aim to help the young people taking part regain their confidence and self esteem, and to give them the opportunity to realise what they can still achieve despite the challenges they face.

Climbing Out was founded in 2010 by Kelda Wood after she suffered a serious leg injury that had a huge impact on her own life. Kelda has gone on to represent Great Britain as a member of the GB Paracanoe squad, however, having just missed out on selection for the Paralympic Games in Rio, she was then selected as a member of the Adaptive Grand Slam Team who were attempting to climb Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America at 7,000m. On the 19th January 2017, she became the first recorded adaptive female to summit the mountain.

In December 2018 Kelda will be attempting to solo row the Atlantic with the aim of inspiring young people, raising awareness about mental and physical trauma in young people, and raising awareness and funds for Climbing Out.
