Rock-Climbing in India
Rock ClimbingYou can't define Rock-Climbing easily; every rock climber, in fact, has his own versions. Sometimes it means to challenge your spirits and explore new heights, to give a fillip to your unlimited imaginations; it's a way of telling for some others to tell the world that he/she has finally arrived. For professional rock climbers, it's not a sport. If mission to moon is not a sport or pastime, then how can you keep rock climbing in this category ? Rock Climbing is an adventure of the greatest magnitude for avid Rock-Climbers. It's a fight against self and against the elements. Rock climbing tests your strength, coordination, skill, technique and concentration. If you are a climber, you would never take mountains for granted. It is obviously rough and antagonistic for those who venture to come to grips with it. Even then, as a sport, climbing keeps offering a thrill and challenge, which is sort of compulsive. Rock climbing, like other adventure sports, is a relatively new sport in this country. However, it has become the most popular adventure sport very shortly. As the great climbing rocks are spread throughout the country and a lot of excitement involved, rock climbing has become the sport to participate in for all.
