Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling.
Climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility and balance along with mental control. It can be a dangerous activity and knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialised climbing equipment is crucial. (Source: Wikipedia)

First time users of the climbing gym are required to take our four part Climbing 101 seminar, where we illustrate the safety concepts applicable to climbing as well as explain basic climbing principles. Experienced climbers can request us via e-mail to schedule a belay test. Please register here prior.
After Climbing 101, if you’d like to progress in your climbing and go outdoors safely, you should start attending our weekly Master Class sessions, taken by Ganesh. These are included in your passes or monthly membership. These are regularly held, no registration required.
Women who’d like to take up climbing seriously can now opt for our unique Climbing Women program. This is taught by a wonderful young climber and coach, Prerna, and held twice a week. We’re proud to host India’s first women-only climbing program!
