A Few Updates!

Posted on

Hi everybody! A few updates on things we’ve changed recently, and wanted to share with you. Not the most exciting update, but an important part of what we do!   So, we’ve made it easier for family members and friends to share passes.   Parents can now climb along with their children in the kids classes if they’d like to get their climbing in; we’re just asking that they take a couple of sessions of 101 so that they’re primed to climb. Parents can share passes with their kids as well.   Friends can share passes on the weekends, so for example if you’re already a climber at DR, and want to bring a friend or two in, you’re most welcome to, they won’t have […]

Aerial Hoop with Aashna

Posted on

The aerial lyra/hoop is a dynamic apparatus, a circular steel ring that provides a frame for acrobatic moves. It is a great platform for fluid movements, transitions and sequences, especially when spinning! As with any aerial skill, aerial hoop requires a balance of strength, stamina and flexibility, something which you will progressively work on during the class. Aerial hoop helps in honing upper body muscle groups and your core strength, improving your range of motion and active flexibility. Aashna Mansharamani is an aerialist from Mumbai visiting us for nine days, the 20th to the 28th of October. She’ll be running three classes with us on aerial lyra/hoop: 1) Aerial hoop for adults A 1.5 hour class to work out the core and stretch out every […]

Suru Fest Early Gathering

Posted on

In the year 2014, a journey began unlike any other. A group of young adults ventured into the Himalayan folds looking for adventure. It was within the lofty ranges of Kargil (Kashmir), where they found their oasis; the Suru Valley.   The Suru Fest started by Tenzing Jamyang and Sandeep Maity, has been held for the past two years. Now, for the third year running, a pre-event is taking place at Delhi Rock.   The event will include some insane bouldering sessions, a short film screening and a Q&A session with some influential climbers, fitness/outdoor enthusiasts, nature conservationists and much more!   There is no entry fee, as it aspires to bring like-minded individuals together!   If you’re interested to join and would like to […]

Back to Nainital!

Posted on

Hi everyone! It’s blistering hot, and we’ve finally found someone to spell Ganeshsir at the gym, so now he’s excited to start adding the outdoors back to our programming. We haven’t done a climbing trip in ages! Nainital is obviously super nice this time of year, and there are tonnes of great bolted routes now, thanks to climbers like Anil Belwal, and the other climbers in the area. Pretty awesome. There’s even a nice government outdoor wall, int’l spec, which will be a likely warmup during the trip. We’ll leave late on Thursday June 14th night, and get back early Monday June 18th morning, so it’s effectively one extra day off from work, and is also a holiday weekend. This trip is suitable to folks […]
