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 […]
Thursday June 28th. 7.30 – 8.30 pm, guest lecture at Delhi Rock. Bharat Bhushan & Prerna Dangi were on a 2 week pre-monsoon Mishmi Takin sponsored expedition to the majestic Paapsura peak in the formidable East Tosh Glacier. In an illustrated talk, Prerna will be sharing the story of the new route they attempted on the peak and the narrow escapes faced by the team. Along with some truly incredible pictures! UPslope Productions were with them covering their climb, where they took a very challenging route till summit camp and attempted a new line post that. Story of their grit, heart and some narrow escapes will be coming as a short film in near future. But in the meantime, do come and check […]
We’re hosting the Hanifl Centre and their world-class First Aid course and certification at Delhi Rock in November. If you’re a trekker, mountaineer, climber or generally an outdoors enthusiast, read on!
Dates April 1st to 17th 2016 Cost Club format (pay your own costs), estimate 60-85k from Delhi, spend depends on your choice of acco, porters, etc. Everest’s daunting summit soars so high that trekking to its base camp (17,590′) is still an adventure of the highest sort. Join us on a 17-day Himalayan trek to Everest Base Camp through some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery. Discover the historic treasures of Kathmandu, stay in villages set against soaring, jagged pinnacles; get to know the unique culture of the Sherpas; and walk trails lined with mani stones, engraved with Tibetan Buddhist prayers. Discover remote mountain monasteries and learn about the Sherpas’ spiritual perspective on the mountains they call home.
So, our third attempt at summiting Mt Patalsu! November 27 to 29. Late November, early December is apparently a good time to head up to Manali and try Patalsu, 14,500 ft. We’ve done this twice before, and not summited, once because we tried to do a single day and that was too aggressive, and the second time we got weathered off the mountain. So, this time we’re going to take three full days, winter camping for two nights so that we have a great shot at it. From our last trip, see pictures, we have a rough idea of where to pitch tents midway, so the plan is to get to Manali and try and knock off at least 2,000 feet of vertical the first […]
