  Types Of Rock Climbing

Rock climbing may be divided into two broad categories: free climbing and aid climbing.

Bridge Slithering: Be an extreme intrepid or dare devil descends from the stupendous bridges, recommendation is for the River side camp at Camp Ganga Descends, Shivpuri, Rishikesh, Uttaranchal/ Uttarakhand.


  Jumaring

Jumaring, also referred to as jugging, is where the second climber (the one who belayed the lead climber on the route) uses ascenders to climb the rope instead of climbing directly on the rock. Along with the ascenders, a webbing "ladder" called Étrier (or aiders) are typically used to allow the climber to use their feet to step up and pull themselves up the rope.

Jumaring is not typically performed on free climbing routes where a climber uses his or her hands and feet on the rock, climbing the features, edges, cracks, and pockets that the route provides without artificial aids. Typically, Jumaring is reserved for aid climbing where the climbers are climbing near featureless faces of rock, usually with very thin cracks that a person probably could not get their fingers into to make the holds useful. In aid climbing, the climbers are very dependant on gear placement to ascend the route.
