You should have a valid health certification from your GP. You do not need to have exceptional physical strength, only a pair of rock climbing shoes. In Poland, we created cheap climbing shoes by converting those used by football players. You only need to cut the cleats off and you have excellent climbing shoes with the extraordinary adherence of a rubber sole.
