To instill the spirit of adventure and to train those who are willing, South Calcutta Trekkers Association has been organizing the Basic Rock Climbing Course every year during the winter months since 1985.

These courses are usually held in the Susunia Hills of Bankura district or in the Mathaburu Hills of Purulia district in West Bengal. The age group of the participants is between 18-35 years. Generally the trainees along with the instructors reach the rock-climbing spots after an eight hour night journey by train from Kolkata.
