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.

Outdoor Trips

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.

Personalized trips

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.   Please call for a customized quote.


Dhauj is a paradise for many other sports apart from rock climbing and our dream is to make it a hub for many outdoor sports. We will be hosting many athletes from around the world to share their experience and knowledge with the Delhi folk.
