36th Basic Rock Climbing Course
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. The 25-30 trainees are divided into 4-5 groups with one instructor and one co-instructor for each group.
The 4 day course introduces the trainees to the arena of rock climbing which includes basic principles of rock-climbing, holds, use of ropes and knots, crack climbing, belaying, anchoring, methods of rappelling along with different gradation of free-hand climbing. Many take to mountaineering in later times after going through the Basic Rock Climbing course from our organization.
