Hampi Over New Year’s

Posted on

It’s time to go to Hampi folks! We thought we’d create a page listing all of the beta we had from last year, so that folks can contribute to it, and help organise their trips this year. We’re working with Project Rockface on this trip, so that climbers going from Delhi have the best information on Hampi we can provide. We’re also using Facebook to help share information on this year’s trip, so please head over to the event page if you’d like to take part.

Patalsu 3 Day Winter Camping. 3rd Edition!

Posted on

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 […]

Posted on

Jenny is back from her trip to Germany, in Delhi for a few days, and wanted to come back and teach at Delhi Rock! This is a two day Acroyoga workshop suitable for both beginners and intermediates.
