Kids Climbing Class

These classes tailored for kids constitute an education in climbing, and apply to all forms of climbing (bouldering, sport and trad). Our goal with the kids classes is to build on the natural confidence and athleticism children have to create climbers with excellent foundational skills and attitudes. This class is suitable for children ages 6+.

Climbing attire is comprised of comfortable, breathable and stretchy clothing; no jewellery of any kind visible; hair tied away neatly; nails trimmed close on both hands and feet. Bring a water bottle with electrolytes and light snacks for hydration and energy. Session duration is 90 minutes.

  1. Dear Team Delhi Rock ,
    My son 1.5 yrs is a good climber and I want to encourage and fan his climbing urges. I saw an Indoor artificial wall for toddlers in some random video which caught my attention.
    Can you help me in any way , may be guide me how to create or buy such walls or can teach him climbing ?

  2. Hi Niki,

    You could invest in a home wall for your child, but I think at that age a jungle gym, or a fun home setup using a variety of things is also a good idea. Kids loving climbing trees too, for example. These things require supervision though, and if you build something, maintenance as well.

    Another alternative is to visit us for a private session with your toddler, and learn the belay system, so that you can bring him / her whenever you’d like. A set of passes is quite affordable, for example with 20 visits you pay 250 per session effectively, and can space those out over several months.

  3. Sure. Do bring him by for a session, you can have him take one class before deciding if he liked it and wants to continue or not.

  4. Hi,

    My daughter is 2.5 yrs. I’m interested for her to learn climbing which will also teach her lots of other related motor skills. It will also involve expending lots of energy as well.
    Please let me know if your team can provide training to a 2.5 yr old.

    Regards

  5. Hi Ashish,

    We can do a private session with our climbing coach Ganeshsir to have her experience climbing, she’s too young to attend our kids class (6+). Do let us know if that works, and suitable times for you! Private sessions are Rs 1800.
