HI,
I will be spending 5 weeks in Delhi very soon and am looking for activities to do outside of work. I've not climbed before but always wanted to.
The pictures look great of lado sarai rocks!
Can anyone recommend a centre or instructor who could provide tuition and gear?
Many thanks Smile

I doubt it, typically centers/ instructors are after the tuition and therefore rarely provide it.

One of the definitions of tuition is instruction. Given the spelling of "centre", maybe the op isn't from the U.S.

Besides, you knew what they meant, right?

I don't understand your answer. Why would centres and instructors not provide tuition? Is that not how they make money and how people learn?

In American English, 'tuition' usually means 'money paid for school by a student.'

Hey Ruby7may,

I'm also new to Delhi, staying in Gurgaon, and looking to meet up with people for climbing. I was a 5.9-5.10 climber on toprope but I haven't climbed in about six months. I can belay but have no leading experience. All my experience is indoor but I would look forward to climbing anywhere. If you're still looking to do some climbing, let me know and we can meet up...

Hey guys!

I went with a couple of friends to Dhauj, a nice local climbing area, and had a blast. Unfortunately we had one person with us who had zero safety training, and made the other two of us feel unsafe.

So I decided, with another climber friend in Delhi, to start a newbies group, and pass on the basics of climbing. We're just doing it for fun, with friends, but you will need your own climbing shoes and harness, about INR 7,000 in Delhi. I can give you a list of local gear shops.

If you'd like to join our newbies group, please call me, Anuraag, at 96542-09060. Happy to include you! We're getting started in the next couple of weeks, and will be climbing all over the area, and doing trips as well.
