Dhauj is the main site for outdoor climbing in Delhi with over 250 routes that were developed during the 80s and the 90s. The climbing is generally pretty steep with some overhanging faces also. There is a mix of grades and the area has something to offer to all climbers. It is a very vast and spread out area and we can choose the climbs depending on heat or the general strength of the group.
The Delhi climbs team is based at dhauj and that has helped us to further explore dhauj. We have been adding to the lead climbs and also discovering many boulders.
Introduction to Rock Climbing
The introductory session is designed for people of all strengths and background. The participants will learn about basic climbing technique, some knots, equipment and get to climb a lot. Our intention is to develop a basic understanding among the participants about climbing and the safety measures.
We will start off with some stretching and warm up exercises and a briefing on safety. You will be given a simple demo of the climb along with required instructions. The routes are of different difficulty and it will be an exciting experience for the first timer. Each climber will get enough climbs individually and by the end of the session have some understanding of climbing movement.
There are many areas to boulder around Delhi but our sessions will be in mostly in dhauj. Dhauj has a good concentration of boulders and there is good chance to get an FA. Even on sunny afternoons its easy to find a few blocks in the shade and it is generally a satisfying session. The bouldering sessions are on all Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM to 5 PM. Apart from climbing some aesthetic problems the focus will be on learning falling and spotting techniques, down climbing, crash pad placement, leave no trace.
Top Rope Climbing
This trip is designed for stronger climbers who are not comfortable leading yet, but would like to climb more challenging routes. Our intention is to familiarize the climbers to the idea of climbing on rock and share some essential skills which would help with climbing outdoors. We will start off with some stretching and warm up exercises and a safety briefing. The climbers will be guided through some basic knots and climbing equipment that is required for climbing. The rock is very slick and most climbing is on edges, cracks and crimps. Very interesting movement and since our sessions are top roped the nerve wrecking exposure is missed out unlike when you lead it on trad. There are many routes in all the areas a climber can climb to his hearts delight.
The only thing better than climbing is climbing with friends. You can now get your friends along for private outdoor climbing sessions. All necessary equipment and customized instruction based on your group's goals will be provided.

“Its all about the vibe, isn’t it?
After a very long time, I found a place around Delhi where people are just filled with pure passion towards thing they do for a living. The entire sentiment of nurturing a community of rock climbers that Delhi Climbs wants to inculcate, is something you can really feel when you are around them. The smiling faces of everyone around you, especially, Jammy and Faris, who ensure you don’t hurt yourself and are safe, is just an amazing vibe! Just go there, even if you don’t know how to climb and just want to have a good time!“
“I feel extremely grateful to have found Delhi climbs and it has become a bigger part of my life ever since.
Jammy, Sandeep, and crew do an amazing job to make sure that every session with them is fulfilling. Even if you've never climbed before and you're willing to try it, this is the perfect way to explore the Delhi rock climbing along with the community and see what it has to offer!“
“There are a few things that are essential if you are new to climbing outdoors:
1) feeling safe
2) a supportive, encouraging and FUN community.
BONUS: beautiful locations that make you forget the madness of the city.
These guys have it all convered and then some! You won't believe it till you try it. And once you do, you ain't ever gonna stop!“
“Great experience to be part of climbs well organised by Jammy and Maity. Also an opportunity to learn from their abundant experiences and that of fellow climbers. Good to see their efforts in building the outdoor climbing community in Delhi NCR. Highly recommend exploring the serene outdoors just 30 min from Gurgaon! ”
“The weekend climbs have emerged to be my kind of vaccine to deal with the pandemic.nothing beats the great outdoors and it surprising how delhi has some magnificent topography and landscapes. Its great to see the comuunity come together while also following pandemic protocol and safety measures which essential in these hard times. I really look forward to the weekend trips. cheers ”
“Climbing with Jammy and Sandeep is the best way to take all your gym experience to real rock and beat the lockdown blues when in Delhi. It's great to interact and learn from the local climbing community while practicing social distancing and other pandemic best practices. I look forward to climbing with the group this weekend.”
“So i started climbing during the lockdown. I found delhi climbs while browsing through the internet and having had some experience in the past with climbing/trekking i just felt that i needed to try this. So i got in touch with Jammy( jamyang) who was super nice and helped me find the climbing spot without a sweat. During the climb the thing that made me really impressed was the amount of support and positive encouragement the delhi climbs team shows. I think you really feel you can fly hehe. Anyways apart from fun theyre very cautious when it comes to safety always keeping it their no.1 priority. But ever since climbing with the delhi climbs team i can't stop thinking about climbing. I dont know about corona but i have definitely been infected by the climbing virus. Looking forward to many more climbs with you guys. Cheers keep climbing, keep flying !“
“Hands down the best go to spot for outdoor top ropes, bouldering and slacklining.
Didn't know places around the city had so much adventure to offer.
Thank you Delhi Climbs for making my every weekend awesome.“
“Initially the trips to Dhauj were a way to step out and climb in a safe space during the lockdowns. With gyms having opened, I find myself drawn to Dhauj even more, not just because of the safety of open spaces - these trips organised by Jammy, Maity and the rest of the team have really transformed the climbing experience from being a ‘workout’ to a ‘lifestyle’. As a noob this is a great opportunity for me to learn more about the sport and meet like minded folks from the climbing scene in Delhi!“
“Delhi Climbs has introduced peace and happiness in the times of frenzy and confusion. The weekends spent outdoors in the company of Jammy, Maity and the crew has presented itself to be a safe haven. One wouldn’t know how rich Delhi is, without the exploration and preparation the team has done. The enthusiasm and fanaticism in climbing has been enjoyable and addicting. It’s one of the of the most crucial luxuries I’ve had, and I don’t know why anyone else shouldn’t! Thanks guys, looking forward to many more with you.“
“Trust me when i say this that delhi_climbs is the only good thing i found on instagram and from that time climbing with this group has become my weekend thing. These are a bunch of folks crazy about climbing and you are sure to have fun with them and dont even worry about safety because these guys have been doing this forever. So hop on for a cocktail of some real climbing and fun.“
“I don't like conventional exercise. Lifting weights in an indoor gym bores the hell out of me. If you're anything like me, you will love Dhauj. Apart from the fresh air and a dynamic workout, you also get guidance from India's best climbers. If you're serious about maximizing your body's potential, look no further than Delhi Climbs.“
“I remember asking a silly question about climbing to Jammy on our way to Dhauj the first time I tried my hand at outdoor climbing. And when we reached the spot, I got my answer then and there- how would such a gorgeous place ever go unnoticed! I enjoyed every bit of Dhauj-from climbing, to meeting new people and having fun conversations! Thank you Jammy and Sandeep for Delhi Climbs! you guys are doing a wonderful job! :)“
“Delhi climbs introduced me to the the breathtaking rocks of Dhauj just 30 minutes away from the city and i was instantly hooked!
Jammy, Maity with the entire team (Amit, Faaris, Subu, Sang!) ensured we climb safe, learn about the discipline and most importantly have a crazy fun time! Weekend climbs have since become a great way to unwind, get my dose of endorphins and learn more about myself.
I would prescribe this thrilling experience to anyone down with the post pandemic blues. And don't worry if it'll be your first time.... if a rookie like me can climb, anyone can!“
