Your Climbing Instructors
Meet Yash Choudhari - an absolutely fierce rock climber.
He has no fear of terrifying heights and makes climbing seemingly impossible-to-scale cliffs and rocks look very easy. He has scaled numerous rocks and cliffs in Vietnam, India and Laos and is equipped with advanced rock-climbing skills.
He doesn't always make it to the top on the first attempt, but that is what rock climbing is all about, it has taught him to be persistent and patient. The smile on his face when he finally finishes the climb and gives a thumbs up, makes us believe in him and in his experiences.
He is also a Certified Wilderness First Responder (NOLS) and is trained in rescue operations, including managing high altitude sickness and advanced first aid skills.
Meet Himanshu Thapa - With 66 treks, 362 days, 1600 km, 5 lakh feet, and counting, Himanshu is a man on a mission – completely unstoppable in the mountains.
Having climbed across India, on sandstone in Badami, granite in Hampi, basalt in Sahyadri, he is now working toward building a community of rock climbers in his hometown of Dehradun.
He truly enjoys bouldering. He loves to take up challenges and climb up those tough boulders, while encouraging others to do so as well.
He is also a certified Wilderness First Responder from NOLS. He found his true calling in Wilderness Backpacking when he went to Colorado in the United States to work with Sanborn Western Camp, an outdoor education organization, as a Camp Counselor.
Join The Club
Once you participate in a workshop with us, you are part of our community. And we want you to keep climbing, so for returnees we offer a discount. Yes, you read that right, we understand that you wouldn’t want to pay the same amount every weekend, so the more often you join us, more skills you will be able to learn, and the more discount you get. Soon you will be independent enough to climb on your own.
But if you want to keep climbing with us, we rent out our gears for you to climb until you buy your own gears. Nothing would make us happier than to see you climb on your own without us after a couple of sessions.
Our discount rates are as follows -
1st time returnee – Rs.1200
2nd time returnee- Rs.1000
3rd time returnee- Rs.800
4th time returnee – Rs.600
After that, we are certain you will be independent enough to climb on your own. You can always join us for a 600/- workshop or rent our gears and climb.
Call us or get in touch with us here to claim your discount.
