2nd. Women Rock Climbing Competition

Women_Rock_Climbers.bmpThe 1st. Women Rock Climbing Competition held on April 15-16′ 2007 proved to be a great success. The response from individuals and institutions was amazing and more than 200 girls were registered and finally 80 girls were selected for qualifying round. There were 12 position holders from 4 categories of competition. On the closing session, Ms. Nilofar Bakhtiar, the then Federal Minister for Tourism awarded shields to position holders while Mr. Bryan Hugill distributed certificates among all participants.

Considering the great response of participants and success of the event, the Club announced 2nd. Women Rock Climbing Competition on 8th. & 9th. March 2008. The dates have been selected exclusively considering the weather conditions, a weekend and International Women Day i.e. 8th. March.

It is expected that the climbers will participate not from the whole country but from SAARC countries as well. The club has plans to organize few training sessions supervised by the experienced and professional Rock Climbing Instructors from USA .

All female climbers, or women, who have an interest in the sport and are willing to give it a shot to participate are requested to send their confirmation to the Club at their earliest. I am not exactly sure about the age and categories, but you can get in touch with them to find out more. Rock climbing is a wonderful adventure sport which involves a lot of physical and mental endurance. However with proper equipment, practice and safety arrangements, it’s a game full of adrenaline pumping action, and you keep coming back for more.

    Hair!..is that only thing worth noticing?!??..:P And yep, Pakistani rock climbers would probably be more worried about their make up and hair, than the climb itself.So you probably don’t see them in this pic, why? coz if there was any, she is dead by now due to fall becoz she was trying to fix her hair…Maybe we can have a “vertical beauty parlor” on the wall somewhere too. Beauty parlor is a hot business these days anyway due to the wedding season.

    On a serious note, I am really impressed by the turn up of our young ladies in last year’s competition. I hope this year is even better.
