Wall Climbing – A Great Recreational Sport

Wall Climbing – A Great Recreational Sport

Posted Jan 28th, 2009 under Company News, Tourism News,

You must have seen Spiderman do it, that is climbing up a wall , but do you know this feat is possible for you too. No kidding! You can climb a wall and that too right here in Kathmandu. The Pasang Lhamu Sport Climbing Center (PLSCC) located in Sankha Park, Ringroad, is one of the most popular places for wall climbing enthusiasts. The sports centre has an artificial wall, 14 m x 14 m with a 70-degree-incline. The wall is affixed with numerous hand and foot holds.  These holds are designed to look and feel like natural rock formation and are arranged in patterns called routes. The wall is safely climbed using ropes, harnesses and protective devices. The centre provides the equipments: ropes, harness, and  climbing shoes for a fee. The center has a membership plan for those who are seriously into wall climbing. They also allow day visits for the curious (one has to pay entrance fee, plus extra for equipments if interested in  scaling the wall).

Climbing Up the wall

Wall climbing is a great recreational sport. It improves concentration, stretches your muscles and is a good way to challenge yourself physically. If you are a climber and planning to scale some Himalayan peaks this season, then you can practice some climbing moves over here. We tell you it’s a great way to keep fit and prepare oneself for those steep inclines. So go to there and haul (or crawl) yourself up!
