Beginners' Bouldering at Khajaguda

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing which takes place on boulders and other small rock formations, usually measuring less than 20 feet from ground to top. Bouldering routes or "problems" require the climber to reach the top of a boulder, usually from a specified start position. Some boulder problems, known as "traverses," require the climber to climb horizontally from one position to another.

Bouldering is climbing in its simplest form. The reasons for its popularity are clear:

• It requires the least amount of gear: A pair of rock shoes, maybe some chalk and a landing pad and you're good to go.

• It's accessible: You can go bouldering outdoors wherever you can find some solid rock.

This meetup event is intended for both beginners and advanced level climbers.

We start with a warm up session and easier boulders for beginners. We will continue to climb till we are tired. Everybody would try at least one hard boulder which is at least one level higher than their capability.

    Guys, please change your RSVPs by friday evening if you are not sure of attendinghe event. I will have to bring shoes for each n every one of you and it would be a waste of effort if the person does not attend. No shows will be treated seriously. Thanks.
    P.S : Please cut your finger n toe nails. it might need lead to small injuries while gripping the rocks.
