GGIM Sport Climbing Gym
GGIM has constructed a state of the art sport climbing – Bouldering Gym at Shri. Mahaveer Jain Vidyalaya, Agharkar Road, next to BMCC Pune.
Sport Climbing is an official event in Olympics. SMJV Bouldering & Climbing Wall Facility is open for all who wish to learn this emerging sport and develop the skills to become a sound sport climber. Additionally, this indoor facility is a great place to hone the skills of Rock climbing.
Overview of Sport Climbing
Artificial Rock Climbing wall is an artificially constructed wall with grips/holds for hands and feet, used for climbing. The concept of the artificial climbing wall began in the UK. The first wall was created in 1964 at Leeds University by Don Robinson, a lecturer in Physical Education and founder of DR Climbing Walls, by inserting pieces of rock into a corridor wall. The first commercial wall was built in Sheffield.
Artificial walls were being used for climbing as a quick practice environment for rock climbing, when actual rock was unavailable. Over the years, it has developed into a professional independent sport. Climbing on artificial walls provides a stable and controllable atmosphere and can suit all levels of climbers. Also it is becoming an increasingly popular urban sport that provides many people an opportunity to train for rock climbing activities.
The Climbing Route
In attempting a given climbing route, the climber is only allowed to use grips/holds of the designated color as handholds and footholds and surface structures/textures of the “rock-face” as footholds. The person who has the capability to design a route for climbers is called as route-setter.
Grade of Climbing
The grade (difficulty) of the route is usually a consensus decision between the route setter and the first few people who climb the whole route. There are several standards accepted globally to mark the grade of any climbing route.
Score for Youth in India
There are 5 zones declared by IMF which participate in national competition. From each zone around 30 climbers (girls, boys, men and women) are selected and recommended for national competition. And after observing a performance of a climber at zonal and national level 3-5 climbers from each category (girls, boys, women and men) in each event (lead climbing, speed climbing and bouldering) are selected for international level. IMF conducts a training cap of all such climbers and recommends capable climbers on Asian and international levels to represent India.
