When was the last time you went for a rock climbing or wall climbing?
Chances are it’s been months. But you can still feel those moments running like a movie before your eyes. What fun that rock climbing session was!!!
If you want to relive those moments, head towards IMF, Delhi.
The best thing about artificial wall climbing at Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF) is you only need to pay Rs. 150 and can continue to climb up and down the wall as long as you can.
IMF is hardly a couple of minutes away from DU’s Venky College.
This Saturday, I went to IMF with my brother. We took a bus (479) and got off at Moti Bagh. From there, we took a private auto rickshaw which charged us Rs. 50.
We reached IMF at about 8.30 in the morning, and the coach – Pawan – has just arrived at the site. He charged us Rs. 300 (for two us), and handed over a receipt for the same.
Before I knew, I was up against the wall. In no time, I reached the top.
The first wall is for the beginner, and is divided into two parts. The first part is easy to do while the second one is a little difficult.
Once you are done with this first wall, you can move on to the second wall, which is longer, more difficult to climb up against, and is again divided into two parts (just like the first wall).
And then comes the third and most difficult wall to climb up to.
If you are someone seeking adventure in New Delhi like wall climbing, IMF is a nice option to try out.
Things to remember –
1) wear a pair of comfortable PT or sports shoes.
2) Come with a sling box of chalk powder; this helps you move up with great ease. However, chalk powder is not essential.
3) Take a phone camera / digi camera along with you; you’d love to click pics here.
