Hi everybody, We wanted to collaborate with our friends at Gravi T Climbing, who organise the wonderful Suru boulder fest, to do a climbing, mountaineering & acroyoga trip to Ladakh. Plus a road trip as well! And obviously we want our community members to come and take part, in whichever bits suit them – climbing, mountaineering, acroyoga or just the travel bit. We’ll cover some beautiful terrain on the trip, monasteries, lakes, the magic of Ladakh. So here’s the rough plan: Aug 25th: Leave Delhi bright and early, ~ 6 AM, and drive to Jammu. 12 hr driving day. Aug 26th: Leave Jammu bright and early, ~ 6 AM and drive to Srinagar. Not a long driving day, about 8 hrs, so should leave time […]
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 […]
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 […]

Welcome to the start of the outdoor climbing season in Delhi folks! We’re super excited about launching our program, starting with safety basics and orientation indoors, then doing the rounds of outdoor locations (artificial and real rock) in Delhi, before heading back to Dhauj regularly for trad outings. The program will be thorough, extend over months, and be a superb education in outdoor climbing, ethics and safety! Continue reading →
