Throw a rock climbing birthday party!

Are you bored silly with the same old birthday parties? Isn’t the piñata too yesterday? There’s no adrenaline rush, no pushing yourself to your maximum at conventional birthday parties. Why not start a new trend?

Ditch the party dress, take up your sports shoes, strap on a harness, fasten a carabineer and throw a rock climbing party! Check out more details of our birthday party programs.

If you are an adventure enthusiast, who would rather climb new heights than simply ascend in age, a climbing party can be a really fun experience. Or if you spend most of your day in front of a computer screen, you need to relax your stiff joints, loosen up your limbs and fill your lungs with oxygen with a rock climbing experience!

Earth Treks offers a private indoor climbing party area, which allows guests of all ages to climb to their heart’s content in a private area, and to serve food and refreshment.

Rock Climbing Party = A Break in the Monotony

Age is no barrier! Climbing can turn into an enjoyable activity for people from all walks of life and ability levels. You don’t have to be a professional mountaineer to scale the walls at Earth Treks Climbing Centers. Enthusiastic instructors are with the group for a full two hours to do all the belaying, maintain balance, break through apprehensions and push upwards. The climbing area is padded with harnesses and ropes used to climb. Earth Treks staff do all the belaying so no experience is necessary.

The whole experience would take about two hours. It is recommended that you book your private climbing event at least four to six weeks in advance to prepare well. To book now Click Here. You may bring along party food and beverages to be indulged in during the halfway break.

The outdoor climbing experience is specifically for nature enthusiasts. For those with no experience in outdoor rock climbing, Earth Treks offers courses for beginners. Start with Introduction to Rock Climbing to get insight into the “vertical world”. Once you feel confident about your belaying skills, the next step would be a course in Intermediate Rock Climbing. If you have a zest for climbing and enjoy new experiences, then sky’s the limit at Earth Treks.

Ditch those maddening deadlines and rush-hour traffic. Take up your climbing gear and set off for a rock climbing gala this birthday. Celebrate not just your day but also your life!
