Dou­ble Rappelling and Climbing adventure-Lake view Khajaguda

Khajaguda Cave Trail

***Mask and sanitizers are a MUST*** ***Except for children no other visitors allowed. Strictly open for participants only.*** Rock Climbing and Rappelling adventure - Two Rappel Lines, one rock climbing line(easy but on belay rope) How to Join? 1) RSVP on this meetup by joining the waiting list. 2) Make a payment online to confirm your slot. Online Payment -Rs. 600 Pay below: Payments Closed. (or) Onspot Payment - Rs. 700 3) Once payment is received you will be moved to the going List. Rappelling, abseiling, canyoning – whatever you call it, is a technique of descent from vertical faces with the aid of ropes and specialized rappelling equipment. Perfect as an introductory adventure, Rappelling also has a psychological application in boosting confidence and courage as Rappelling facilitates an attitude of overcoming challenges Rock Climbing - Top rope climbing or Top roping is a style in climbing in which a rope, used for the climber's safety, runs from a belayer at the foot of a route through one or more carabiners connected to an anchor at the top of the route and back down to the climber usually attaching to the climber by means of a harness. What do we do: Hike up the hill and down to lake side. Climb a boulder to reach first rap line. On top of this line, a short 20ft climbing pitch which is easy but will be done with belay rope/rope assistance to reach the second rap line. The session includes an introduction of the activity with information about climbing and rappelling equipment like Carabiners, descenders, harnesses and rappelling ropes. There is a demonstration of rappelling techniques and anchoring and safety system followed by guided attempts by participants. Start time: The exact meetup point is provided in the Map location on this meetup. Follow the map and you will reach the spot. If you do not have a smart phone, ask for Anantha Padmanabha temple on top of khajaguda hills End time: We expect each activity takes about 30 minutes per person with three concurrent activities in progress. So, it takes about 3 - 4 hours for the entire activity for the group. Warning: Rappelling is one of the most dangerous aspects of climbing. More accidents occur with rappelling than any other climbing activity - Do not do this by yourself . You could get injured or killed, even if you do everything exactly right. Always let some other experienced climber cross check your setup before you rappel. Please do not try this yourself without a safety belay in place and without direct supervision of a skilled and experienced climber. Instructions *Saniter and masks.
