PPS Climbing wall is up

16th Dec 2015. In a thundering applause and cheers, Ameya Tambat, a 10 year old kid from Pune, who recently made it among the top 6 climbers at National Level Sports Climbing Competition stepped up; attached rope to his harness and communicated to the belayer, “I`m climbing”.

Ameya had come from Vidya Valley School to demonstrate Artificial Wall Climbing Sport to the students of Pawar Public School (PPS), Hinjewadi. His amazing climbing skills and gecko movements on an overhanging wall left everyone enthralled.
For past three months, GGIM team has been relentlessly working on this Climbing Wall Construction Project for PPS, Hinjewadi. Under the guidance of Mr. Umesh Zirpe and under Bhushan, Dinesh and Vivek’s supervision, Prabhakar and his fabrication team spent countless sleepless hours to make the structure a perfect wonder. While Ganesh More, Anand Mali and Ranjit Shinde gave valuable inputs to make this wall unique and scientifically safe.

Yesterday, on 16th Dec 2015, PPS Principal Mr. Devendra Kumar welcomed everyone at the wall climbing arena. Bhushan oriented everyone about the current sports climbing scenario in India and abroad. Soon after that the climbing wall was inaugurated by Col. Raman Sharma in presence of dignitaries Deputy Director DSYS, Mr. N. B. Mote, Assistant Director, Deputy Director DSYS, Ms. Kavita Nalande, Vidya Valey School Principal Mr. Vivek Gupta, Giripremi President Mr. Anand Palande, Giripremi Co-founder Mrs. Ushaprabha Page, GGIM Director Mr. Niranjan Palsule and Giripremi Everest Expedition Leader Mr. Umesh Zirpe.

This is a great opportunity for PPS students and all the enthusiasts who wish to learn this sport. GGIM will soon conduct a Basic Sports Climbing Course which will be open for all.
