CLIMBING

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)

  1. Hey,
    I am visiting Delhi for a few days this week and just wanna do some indoor leading. Toproping and bouldering are fine as well. I just want to know what the procedure to climb in your gym is like, because I’m just there for 3 days (24,25,26 nov) and probably wont be able to do the intro course. I do work at a boulder, toprope and leading gym where I live and I’m lead belay certified by the American Alpine Club regulations. I do not have a belayer with me so I want to meet someone who i could climb with. I will belay for the other climber as well, I really love belaying other people. I already have shoes, a harness, chalk and a belay device and wanted to know if I could rent a rope from you if I climb. Thanks in advance

  2. Hi Aakashdeep,

    You’re welcome to come in on the 24th and get belay certified with us. Please see http://delhirock.com/climbing-101/ for notes on our belay system. You don’t need to do the intro course if you’re an experienced climber, the belay test is free and just takes 15 minutes, anytime from 3 pm to 9 pm. Yes, hopefully you’ll bump into folks on the day to climb with you, you can also ask our people to belay you. We have a rope for lead climbing, please ask the person at the reception for help with that.

  3. I am thinking of coming to Delhi rock.I wanted to ask you if the regular sessions are available on Mondays.
    Thank you

  4. Yes, we’re open for climbing today, from 3 to 9.30 pm. If you need a private session, you can do one, or just pay the regular fee and boulder.

  5. Hey,

    I’m a french student who is coming to work for 3 months in Delhi from 22nd April till 10th July. I do bouldering climbing indoor in France, do you think I will be able to take a kind of subscription in Delhi Rock to do bouldering once or twice a week during my stay ?
    Is it possible in the end of weekday ?
    I just have to bring my climbing shoes ?

    Thank you !

    Axel

  6. Yes, you’re welcome to pay our monthly fee, which is Rs 3200, or pay for 20 passes, Rs 5000, depending on the frequency of intended use. We’re open till 9.30 PM, so yes, it is possible to come after work. Correct, just climbing shoes please.

  7. You’re welcome to come every day if you’d like! But we recommend climbing 2-3 times a week to begin with, that’s enough, and you need rest as well.

  8. Hi I’m only free on Sundays.
    6 days a week I work from 10 to 7.

    How can I attend the 101 classes?

  9. 101 is at 730 pm on Tue and Thu, so you should be able to attend that? Alternatively, you can attend four Sundays 5 pm in a row. Alternatively, you can set up private sessions with Ganeshsir on weekday nights (say 8 pm) to gain the same instruction.

  10. I have some experience in climbing, and want to bring some friends to have some fun and give them an exposure as to what is climbing.
    What would the charges be like for a single visit per person as such ?

  11. Hi Ravtej,

    If you want to handle the group, that’s fine too – you just need to visit us beforehand and get belay certified, details of which are at http://delhirock.com/climbing-101/. You can do this any week day between 3 and 7.30 pm.

    The fees for a dropin (without instructor assistance) are 400 per person, plus 100 each for shoes / harness. You might just want to book a group visit with us (size 5 and above) where we charge 500 per head and provide instructors as well.

  12. Hi,
    I want to start with Climbing 101. Can I drop in, on Tuesday and pay at the gym straight away.

    Thanks

  13. If i pay the monthly fee do i have to pay for 101 separately or will it be inclusive of all other charges?

  14. Yes, 101 is separately charged, the 4 sessions for 1800. After 101 you can take up passes or a monthly. 101 is inclusive of all charges.

  15. I am going for a trip next week for 10 days, so should I start the sessions when I come back or should I start right away?

  16. Either way. You won’t forget 4 sessions worth of training in 10 days, and will be able to join our master class sooner. Whatever you think is most convenient.

  17. well can i try it too because i have weakness in my body and i can’t walk properly but i want to do it

  18. If you have a condition which makes walking properly difficult, but want to try climbing, we could set up a session for you with our climbing coach. Could you please call Ganeshsir at +91 85270 55980? Please explain your concerns to him and see what he has to say.

  19. Hi. I just want to try out rock climbing with my 10-year-old son. Can we just drop in during your opening hours and try it out for an hour or more and pay for that? Or do we need to book lessons and have membership?

  20. Hi Nita,

    We have kids classes every Tue & Thu at 4 pm, and every Sat & Sun at 3 pm.

    At those times, the kids get to climb for Rs 500 per head (or buy 10 passes for Rs 3000 or 20 for Rs 5000).

    If you’d like a specific time, we can also set up a private session, which would be Rs 1800 total. Private sessions can be set up to suit your convenience.

  21. Hi,
    I’m hoping v to take the 101 next week. Just wanted to ask if I buy the 20 passes after the 101, does that include an instructor / someone to belay? Thanks

  22. The 20 passes are for coming to DR to climb, and we don’t have people around to help belay! So it’s important to join the climber’s whatsapp group and find someone to come and climb with. Master Class is also a lot of fun, and that’s guided, so another good way to get regular climbing in with lots of other climbers!

  23. Hi, I want to do rock climbing course for one month in the month of 20 december to 20 january in Delhi. I am the beginner in this course. I want to do regular classes as 6 or 7 days a week. What would be the fees and timings.

  24. That’s great. You can take 101 for the first ten days (four sessions for Rs 1800, on Saturdays and Sundays at 5pm) and learn the safety basics, after which you’re able to join our regular Mon Wed Fri 730 pm Master Class to improve your climbing conditioning and skill with Ganeshsir, our climbing coach. You can buy passes for the remaining month, 10 passes are Rs 3000.

  25. Hi,
    I wanted to know if i could attend a Climbing 101 course after the 10th of December? Is the course available every weekend or only certain specified dates?

  26. I just want to come by for a day with a friend, and I think I need to buy a “single pass” for that. No further detail regarding “single pass” other than the price is available on your website. Can you please tell me if it’s okay to drop by anytime, tentatively 10th Feb? And also will a pair of active sports shoes suffice for the session or do we need to rent a specific climbing shoes? Thanks.

  27. Hi Tenzin,

    Yes, that’s right, you’re welcome to drop in anytime on the 10th, that’s a Saturday and we’re open from 8 am to 8 pm that day. A single pass entitles you to climb for as long as you’d like. Climbing shoes are Rs 100 rental.

    If you’ve climbed before, you should just drop in and boulder and climb. If you haven’t, you might want to take our Climbing 101 class that day, that’s Rs 600 for one session and is a guided group session for climbing. 5 pm on Saturday.

  28. I want to do learn climbing and pole climbing for my physical efficiency test.which is to be held at 3 rd March. can you people help me.

  29. Hello,

    I’m staying in delhi for a couple of weeks and would like to come around for some boulder sessions. I can understand that newbies have to do the belaying course for toprope, but can I use the bouldering facilities without the course and at what days/times is the place opened for bouldering?
    Hope to see you soon!

    Regards, Mella

  30. Hi,
    I stay in delhi and interested to do some outdoor activities like rock climbing. Can I do rockclimbing session for this Sat just to check the environment and how it goes. If it works I’ll like to attend the whole course. Also, for a single pass will I be getting any instructor for help or its just on our own.

  31. Hi,
    Can I take the Climbing 101 (all 4 sessions) during weekdays, or maybe like combine a weekend and 2 weekdays?
    Also, can I come and pay directly or is it mandatory to book the session in advance?
    Thanks

  32. Hi Swati,

    At the moment 101 is only on weekends at 5 pm, as posted. You could come in for a single weekend though (two sessions) and then ask Ganeshsir if he feels you’re ready to jump right into Master Class on MWF 7.30 pm. If he thinks you are, you can hop in for your latter two sessions then.

    101 is starting to run quite full, so we recommend signing up online to have assured availability of slots!
