The Maximum Series Ribbon Climber is a metal climber with an alternating series of rectangular steps. This makes it a truly unique climbing challenge, which forces kids to think before taking the next step. The rectangular shape of the steps offers more places to step, since kids can either place their foot inside of the step, or on top of it. The large number and close placement of these steps is particularly useful for kids with shorter limbs, or who are nervous about taking large steps. The step pattern also makes it climbable from every side, unlike a traditional ladder with only one climbing surface. Despite its name, the Maximum Series Ribbon Climber is made from highly durable galvanized steel, making it incredibly strong and resistant to damage. Its coating of weatherproof paint is available in a variety of vibrant color options, which can be selected as you complete your order.
