Tuhin climbing Bees Knees, Vagator                                                                                                                                           VERITABLY VERTICAL: Tuhin Satarkar climbs Bees Knees, at Vagator

For decades, the only rock climbing site in Goa was at Kalay, on a hill near a railway station deep in the interior of the state. About five years ago, Kim Sabir put up a three-metre high artificial wall in his backyard at Socorro. Then, in 2014, he discovered an abandoned quarry at Chapora on the banks of the river that offered the potential of good routes.

VAGATOR

But rock climbing in Goa got a really big boost in March, when came Tuhin Satarkar to this state. Tuhin discovered, climbed and bolted a route at Vagator that is truly as beautiful as it is challenging. The site is on the sea shore, and can only be accessed at low tide. The black basalt has several jug handle holds, which make this partly overhanging route climbable.

AGUADA

We have also found good climbing routes at Aguada. These are on seaside cliffs with anchors on top for top-roped climbing. The site is truly fabulous. It is seaside, picture-perfect and also offers views of the ramparts of Fort Aguada.

SEA-SAW

At low tide in Vagator, we sometimes swim out to the rocks at the mouth of the river and climb them. It’s spectacular climbing, and if you fall, it’s into the water. Simply awesome…

We do not price Rock Climbing on rock faces except for corporate packages. All enthusiasts can climb with us, for fun (serious climbers only). Expenses will be shared. Drop a line if interested.

The Wall at Campal, Panaji

THE WALL AT MAGSONS
THE WALL, NOW AT CAMPAL: Climbing High

Urban Goa’s first climbing wall was set up outside the Magsons Superstore at Porvorim, across the Mandovi River from the state capital, Panaji. Now, it has been shifted to a picturesque locale on the banks of the River Mandovi, next to the Sports Authority of Goa (SAG) Indoor Stadium.

A joint venture between the Magsons Group and Adventure Breaks, the wall is 20 ft high and fitted with a combination of holds. It has been designed for first-time climbers as well as those with more experience. Novices can climb using all the holds, while more technical climbers can find routes that suit their abilities, using colour coordinated sets of holds.

Safety is the highest priority. The very latest imported climbing harnesses, carabiners, braided ropes and belaying devices are used. Climbing without safety gear is not allowed. A highly trained coach gives instructions and supervises each climber.

Cost: Rs120 for four climbs (a ticket can be shared in a group).

The Wall at Kim’s House 

The Wall at Kim's House
YOU CAN CLIMB: It’s small, but technical…

It’s amazing the amount of routes you can put up on an artificial climbing wall that is only 12 ft high.

In Kim Sabir’s backyard in the rustic village of Socorro, this wall has a huge profusion of holds, yielding routes from the easy to the most technically difficult.

Crash mats and optional belays make it one of the safest and most challenging walls in the country; it’s just like an artificial boulder.
