I stand so feeble in-front of 12 meters high rocky cliff of Nagarjuna when I went to try ‘rock climbing’ for the first time. That day I even doubted my will for trying this adventurous sport. But as I did my first and second attempts, I naturally start to enjoy the thrill it sends down my spine. I drained all my stamina by the third attempt but my heart beats keeps beating for more. Rock climbing is simply awesome feeling to boast ones self confidence.
Last Month Jan 17, I went Nagarjuna again to thrill myself more along with my camera. I have captured some thrill of Rock Climbing to share here in Everest Uncensored.
