This article gives basic tips for rock climbers visiting Karnataka.

The rock climbing areas in Karnataka attract plenty of adventurous people out to have fun outdoors.

Naturally, safety should be the first concern of any rock climber. It is hoped that this article will provide sufficient basic tips for rock climbers visiting Karnatka.

Top 10 Tips for Rock Climbers Visiting Karnataka:

(1) Always carry a first-aid kit when you go rock-climbing in Karnataka. Don't expect there to be a chemist shop around the corner!

(2) Check out the weather before you head out to the rocky areas in Karnataka. Heat and rain can both spoil the expedition.

(3) Always carry your own bottles of water. Each individual in a group should have his/her own bottle. This is THE most important item to have as dehydration can create serious problems. Also, make sure that you drink enough water the day before and drink each time you feel thirsty - don't wait till you have finished rock climbing.

(4) It is best to carry some wholesome nutritious snacks as food facilities may not be available within close vicinity of the rock-climbing areas in Karnataka.

(5) There are no washrooms/toilets in the rock-climbing areas in Karnataka unless nearby lodgings are available.

(6) Find out from locals if there are any dangerous denizens amidst the rocks (vipers, etc).

(7) It is best to go in a group especially if you are a novice so that if you are hurt there is somebody to help you out. It is also a good idea to go in a group to find the rock-climbing spot in Karnataka, so if you are lost at least you will have company.

(8) Check and double-check all rock-climbing gear - harness, buckles, shoes...every little bit.

(9) It is a good idea to get basic training before venturing into rock-climbing. Although some of the rock-climbing spots in Karnataka are relatively easy, if you do not know how to use rock-climbing gear you could seriously hurt yourself. In fact, it is a sensible idea to accompany an experienced person in rock climbing rather than venturing out alone if you are a beginner.

(10) ALWAYS wear a helmet at all times during rock-climbing in Karnataka. A fall could cause serious head injuries, not to mention brain damage. A helmet literally could be your saviour.

Keep the above tips in mind and your rock-climbing expedition in Karnataka could be lots of fun instead of a nightmare!
