Rock Climbing in Nepal


 Rock climbing is a sport in which participants climb up or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a pre-defined route without falling. Climbing is generally differentiated because of the use of hands to support the climber’s weight as well as to provide balance. Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility and balance along with his mental control.

There are some great, dizzying places for those who get their kicks from crawling up vertical cliffs. If you are not making it to any of the country high peaks, here’s another opportunity to get high. Of late, rock climbing has found rising popularity among the tourists coming into Nepal as well as for local enthusiasts.

After “mud season” (mid-April, most years) ice and snow will only be present in shady areas and rock climbs start to dry out. By the end of April, most cliffs are in good shape for rock climbing and the season is usually in full swing. Warming temperatures and lengthening days make this a fine time to climb.

Toward the end of May, the infamous black fly starts to hatch and they stick around through June most years. Although black flies can be very irksome for some people, others are hardly bothered. If you climb in areas where they are controlled (biologically or chemically) and stay above the tree-tops, you will likely find them just a minor annoyance. Top-rope at the wrong cliff and you will give blood!

By July, the bugs are mostly gone and the weather is typically ideal for climbing for many weeks – although there may be some hot, muggy, or wet days. As days shorter and nights get colder the foliage changes, signalling the start of our favourite part of the rock climbing season. From mid-September, thru early October the Adirondacks might just be the best place to rock climb on the planet!

Toward the end of October colder temperatures, shorter days and the end of foliage season make rock climbing less attractive. Before, and after, the rock season there are usually a few scattered and unpredictable days of enjoyable climbing. We have climbed warm, dry rock in the Adirondacks during all 12 months of the year, but it has taken almost twenty years to find a warm day in every month!

climbing rope

Climbing ropes are the single most important piece of rock climbing equipment. There are only a couple of instances in which a climber wouldn’t need them:

  • When they’re bouldering – typically climbing no more than around 15ft, with a crashmat underneath for safety.
  • When they’re free soloing, which only a fraction of climbers worldwide even pursue, such as the risk.

For every other type of climbing, ropes are an essential part of the sport. In tandem with proper use of your harness, carabiners, belay device, quickdraws, and cams, climbing ropes will save your life if you slip or fall off the rock face.

It isn’t enough to own climbing ropes, though. You also need to know how they function and work with the associated apparatus. Most indoor bouldering gyms or climbing centres have dedicated belay systems for rope climbing and offer tutorials so you can get to grips with them.

Once you become more experienced and want to buy your rope, For example:

  • Rope type
  • Diameter
  • Length
  • Rope features
  • Safety ratings

You need to decide upon the above relative to the route you intend to climb. You should also bear in mind that too much rope can be an issue, as it can lead to drag on the wall. You’d be surprised how heavy a rope can feel when you’re exhausted.

If you’ve bought a suitable climbing rope, you’ll need an appropriate safety harness to attach it to. There are two primary considerations here:

  • How much do you want to spend?
  • What type of climbing do you intend to do?

If you want a catch-all harness to serve you in multiple climbing disciplines – whether you’re into trad, sport, winter, or indoor climbing – versatility and comfort should be your primary focuses. When purchasing your climbing gear, this is also the approach we’d recommend – you want to own equipment you use regularly. You can always hire anything more specific if you need it.

Ideally, your harness should comfortably work with your clothing to ensure a full range of movement. Padding, extra-wide webbing, ventilation, and moisture transport are just some of the key features to look for.

As for a harness’s anatomy, it contains two front tie-in points where the climber can thread the rope and tie it in – one at the waist (the belay loop) and one at the leg loops. The waist belt fastens (yep, you guessed it) around your waist.

Given that a harness is designed to keep you safe, you need to examine the harness for defects or damage even when buying one new.

Belay device

If they don’t own one already, a belay device is one of the first pieces of rock climbing hardware a trad or sport climber will buy when planning a climb.

If you haven’t heard of a belay device before, it’s essentially a mechanical friction brake used to protect climbers from falls or lower them from an ascent. The belay provides multiple points of friction, meaning the belayer doesn’t have to hold the climber’s full weight as they descend. It doesn’t take long to get to grips with the basic function of a belay. However, we highly recommend practising in a controlled environment first, particularly with help from a climbing instructor. It isn’t so much that the device is complicated to understand. Rather, the consequences for inattention are grave, so you’ll want to know it inside and out.

The below video shows you everything you need to know (but, of course, practise first)

In some cases, like in a climbing gym, the belay device you’re fastening your rope to might be mechanical. But in most cases, it’ll be another person.

A carabiner, in simple terms, is a device to which you can attach things without fear of them becoming detached. So, in climbing, they’re used for all sorts of purposes, such as connecting climbing rope with other pieces of climbing protection such as nuts, camming devices, and bolts.

They’re usually made from steel rigorously tested for strength and feature a gate to allow your rope or equipment to pass through. This gate then shuts to prevent the equipment from slipping out of the carabiner.

These are the equipment that you need for rock climbing.


A few tried-and-true, durable snacks to power your climb:

  • String cheese
  • Chocolate bars
  • Dried fruit
  • Honey and banana
  • Tortilla wraps
  • Energy and granola bars
  • Caffeinated gel packets
  • Mini burritos, pre-cooked
  • Chocolate-covered espresso beans
  •  cashews 
  • Almonds


  • 1 x Pack of Assorted Plasters.
  • 1 x Medium Wound Dressing 12 x 12cm.
  • 2 x Low Adherent Dressings 5 x 5cm.
  • 1 x Low Adherent Dressing 10 x 10cm.
  • 1 x Small Plaster Fabric Strip 4cm x 1m.
  • 3 x Wound Closure Strips.


The key to understanding how a route is graded is as much in a route’s construct and location as it is in its moves. For example, The Utah desert is almost exclusively known for its very particular style of slab and crack climbing. For the local community, a 5.7 would be the grade for someone who is intimately familiar with that type of climbing, but if you aren’t used to this type of climbing, these routes will feel more difficult.
