Not to mention the lessons taught by Pramod Chavhan and Anjali Parab, both instructors at Arun Samant Climbing wall at Goregaon. The climbing would not have been possible without their motivation, at Goregaon wall as well as while climbing. Anjali tai was the lead climber and Neha belayed her. Suraj Malusare, another excellent climber, followed her. First day was spent to setup the rope and pre-arrangement for next days climb.
The fact worth noting was that five, 11 year old kids from Nandadeep Vidyalay from Goregaon also successfully climbed this pinnacle and gave a stunning message to the climbing community that even they shouldn't be left behind. Given proper training, guidance and motivation, even small kids can climb heights. Checkout the training video from our Rock-climbing practice at Manori. The only thing that annoyed me was that they had to share their PA shoes among themselves. They are currently taking the climbing lessons from Anjali Ma'am and Pramod Chavan sir. The kids are lucky to have the Arun Samant climbing wall in their school premises and the can use it without any membership fees.
