CLAW Hampi Meet-Up 2019
Time & Location
About the Event
A five day gathering of thirty women from across the country in an established climbing destination where participants get the opportunity to push their limits physically and mentally through a unique and creative discipline. Under the mentorship of experienced women climbers, basics of climbing, safety protocols and sport specific exercises will be introduced. Yoga and slacklining sessions will also be conducted. No prior experience in climbing is required! Our aim is to encourage more women to take up climbing and help create a supportive community.
Cost: 2000 rupees for 5 days.
Accommodation: We have obtained a camping space within a cafe compound and will be pitching tents there. Tents will be provided on twin sharing basis for Rupees 400 per person per day. Toilets and bathrooms will be shared. Once you have registered for the event, you will receive a follow up email with details on how to pay the registartion Fee of Rupees 2000 and the amount to book tent sites and you have to do it within 24 hours of registration. You can send payment for the number of days you plan to attend, if you cannot make it for all five days.
Gear: Climbing shoes, crashpads and chalk are the essential equipment for bouldering. We will be arranging crashpads and chalk at the venue for group use. If you do not have your own climbing shoes, you can rent them from our stock for Rupees 150 per day.
Day 01, 02, 03: The first three days are the most important. We will focus on learning basic techniques of bouldering, safety protocols, strength training exercises along with a load of fun stuff like yoga and slacklining, movie nights and swimming in the lake! We will be working together as a group and would request you to work around certain time lines, which will ensure maximum time for having fun, we promise!
Day 04, 05: The last two days of the meet up is for everyone to do their own thing! The days will be unstructured and participants can team up and go try different climbs or explore other climbing sites. The mentors will still be around and climbing together so this is also a great opportunity to watch, learn and climb with us. We hope by this time you feel confident in your skills to have fun on your own, to mingle and climb with other climbers in Hampi not restricting to women. The idea is to make the climbing community inclusive after all!
