I rarely do trick line, but it is always fun to try new tricks. It feels very difficult in first try but once you dare and keep trying the same then you starts understanding small key points to make the perfect move. @shivdurgaclimbinggym @goproindia @gopro #Slacklining #trick #parkour #fitnessjourney #dailyworkout

When I got a call for rescue for Sangli flood I was so excited to go and help people. But this time we were going to rescue animals, because all humans were already moved to the safe place by NDRF and local people but nobody were looking after animals. When we reached there, suddenly I strated feeling vulnerable. Starting rescue operation was the real challenge. We were standing on a brink, I could only see a river that had became an ocean. Somehow we crossed it and entered in a village that has became a land of filth. While walking on road in the village I was watching hundreds of dead animals. It was so wretched and made me numb... We moved ahead and started serching animals who were somehow survived. Then our team of veterinary doctors stated treatment on those animals one by one. We covered few villages and saved many life. Now flood water level has came down, other people got the access to every corner. Local veterinary doctors stated their work so we came back. Team @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala and @resqct worked so dedicately and without any expectations. Proud to be a part of this team. #flood #story #rescue #team #save #life #animal #rescue

Everyday after work I go for climbing practice between 6 to 9, sometimes till 10 or 11 in the night. These few hours are really important for me. I just try to utilize every single minute. Now we have a lead wall of 35 ft. Fighting on crux on such height is really different than climbing a boulder. It's a game of power, endurance and mental control.

Isn't it serious? Thousands of people are coming to lonavala on every weekend. Hundreds of dying every year. Still everyone wants to come here and.. why? This is not their fault.. they just come to enjoy. Now think from the side of local people. Local Police force has to work for them and put extra efforts to keep the situation under control. Local people are fed up of this crowd. They can't even go to their home easily. Even ambulance can't find a way from this crowd, if someone die in this crowd then who will be responsible? Being a rescuer I know the importance of time. We get calls for rescue very frequently. Just tell me how we are going to reach to the rescue location? Neither we have any special vehicle which has a siren nor we have any special identity card as rescuer. So it is super difficult to reach on rescue location. There are so many rescue teams in India facing the same problem. @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala #rescue #team

Everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us. Handstand is a reflection of strength. #reflection #handstandtraining #armbalance #yogalife #dailyworkout #fitnesstransformation #nature #beauty #sayroo

before a month I had gone to pune with my family. I parked my car near climbing wall. That was the first time my mother was seeing a climbing wall. Since I was climbing, she was just listening about climbing wall. After watching for few minutes she questioned me, "do you climb this till the top?" in reply I just gave a wide smile and explained her everything about climbing. Being an adventure athlete I travel a lot. I bring a lot of stuff of climbing and slacklining to the home. Everything is always messed up and uncleaned, from my bags, ropes, shoes, workout accessories.. to my clothes. But she never complained. In fact I give very less time to my family. She never supported directly for my passion but I her hidden support is the real reason for my success. #support #love #climbinginspiration #climbingwall

#Repost @wanderingsoulsindia with @kimcy929_repost • • • • • • Beyond the Balance.. because for him life is all about balancing.. He called himself a Rock climber, highliner and a slackliner. Probably he is India's only professional slackliner. Risk is his best friend and balance is his secret energy. He is Rohit Vartak ( @rooclimbslack ), A man who believes in balancing things. As he uncovered his journey in few words he never miss out on a person named as #Dean_Potter You can call him his inspiration. As Rohit shared his balancing journey, 'In our country High line, slack line are those things which were never did by anyone at the professional level. So I watched videos of Dean potter, I literally made those videos my tutor, meanwhile I took help from some people from pune and practiced sacklining for some one year. After which I was able to manage doing slacklining.' . . Rohit defines inspiration in two words. As he mentioned, 'One is #Trust and another is #Balance His rock climbing partner #Ganesh_Geedh is the reason why Rohit has been successful in his rock climbing challenges. Bonding with your partner is very important as it leads you to that place which you don't even imagined'. . . While unfolding an unforgettable climb, he recollects the route of #Kokankada About which he adds, 'This was one of the climb which I will remember throughout my life. For the first time when I went there I didn't even manage to touch my feet till the edge to see that kokankada And see. today me and my climbing partner #ganesh did kokankada leaving behind all our failures. It wasn't easy as We didn't take a support from upper side. We were dependent on a single rope. We failed drastically. We climbed 60 percent, 70 percent and again we failed. But at the end we did that climb and trust me it was one such satisfying moment till now.' . . life is all about balancing.. Is that #mantra followed by Rohit and many of his followers. because be it in terms of profession, passion balancing everything is what we all need. And this is why he always respect that balance. Rohit has many future plans and climbs in his mind.. And for that he is just doing one thing. #Balancing

Guys...1st of all thank you so much for your support. I know there are many people who wants to join me on such adventure. I received so many calls and messages for the same. But it's is not possible for me to invite all on such project. You alswas watch my photos that I am alone doing this crazy stuff, but the fact is there is strong team supporting and working behind these kinds of photos. This kind of adventure project need a strong and technical team. Every individual team member must be capable to do all technical work otherwise other team members have to take care of now-familiar members which consume more time and efforts. I am very lucky that I have a very strong team. Everyone's know their responsibilities, from technical to cooking, from base camp management to photography, no work is big or small for them. This comes only because of strong bounding. It doesn't mean that you can't join us. You can.. and I would really like if you learn some basic things and join us on my project. It is not necessary that you have to be master in climbing and slackline. But you must have basic knowledge. Adventure is an extreme sport. So you have to prepare for every bad thing. We have a indoor climbing wall. We also have a small rig of Midline where anyone can learn slackline and highline. Soon we are organizing some workshop for climbing, slackline and highline. So there are so many ways to learn. @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala @shivdurgaclimbinggym @4play.in #adventuretime #adventure # @goproin #goproindia @gopro #sayroo #climbinglife #slackline

I was not a handstand lover before a year but when I saw some athletes are doing handstand on highline then I took it seriously. In just few months I gained control over my handstand. But that is not the real aim.. I am dreaming for a handstand on a slackline. This is super difficult. Sometimes I can do it for few sec.. and sometimes not even for micro sec.. It is depending on so many things.. length of the slackline, tension on the line, my srength and most important.. my mindset. It is the most difficult thing I ever found and it is taking so much time. This has become a self challenge for me. I want to do this and I will... HAPPY INTERNATIONAL HANDSTAND DAY. @4play.in | #4PlayAthlete #handstands365 #handstandday #handstandchallenge #armbalances @shivdurgaclimbinggym

"FEARLESS" I feel myself becoming the fearless person, I'm constantly evolving and challenging myself. This fearless attitude helping me a lot to perform better in my sport.😊 Watch this short film of my highlining. Simply edited but I am trying to show ultimate fun which I am always having on my adventure. And watch till the end, you will get to see my bad singing 🤣. Dont miss to listen marathi song which I sang while walking highline.🤭 FULL VIDEO IS ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE AND YOUTUBE CHANNEL Link in bio. #slackline #sayroo #highline @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala @shivdurgaclimbinggym

FEARLESS Soon am posting a video of my highlining. This is shot on gopro. It will show highline from my angle. I just mounted a gopro camera on my head and my natural reactions got coughed in the camera. You will get to see how I enjoy when I am on the highline. In fact eveone should do the same when they go for an adventure. Usually people get scared of height.. and instead of enjoying they focus on other negative thoughts. Of course this comes with the experience. When you gain more knowledge about the gear and equipment, then you trust more on it. So..yhee.. this is the formula to enjoy. Gain knowledge and be fearless.

When I came into slackline field the first highline came into my mind was between Jivdhan fort and Vanarlingi Pinnacle. hundreds of times I discussed with my team about this. Last week we made this happened. I would say we rigged the India's most beautiful highline ever. I had never been on any highline which has such exposure. The pinnacle's itself height is 400ft but when a person goes on the line can directly see the exposure above 1000ft. Unfortunately nobody was able to walk the complete highline, but yes.. it has become the dream project for me and we are definitely going back to complete this walk. I would like to thank the whole team. Everyone was playing their roles very well. Team Shivdurga Mitra Lonavala which is always there to support me, no matter what responsibilities are there, from rigging to cooking, team is always there to help. Highline team, it was so much inspiration to watching your efforts on the line. Photography team, thank you so much for capturing all action into your cameras. Special thanks to @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala , Stoned Eye Production, @lifegearsafety , @magicpixels , @range_adventure , Amhi Dronekar and MSA. @4play.in Photo - @siddh1995 (We kept this project secret because of some permission and safety issues.

Every climber has a big fantasy of "climbing shoes". It is not only a shoes but a tool which improve his performance. Every climber has different choices, depending on his climbing style and use but this is my favorite. "La Sportiva Miura". This is the 5th time I bought the same model. No matter where I climb, whether on bouldering, lead or even on big wall I feel much comfortable in this shoes. . Which one is your favorite climbing shoes? . New shoes arrived.

Kokankada climbing... It became my dream climb and after two failuer attempts in 2015 and 2016 we decided to give one more try. On 20th May 2017 we reached on the summit... but we didnt stop there only. We again climbed this massive big wall on 17th May 2018. Both successful climbs we finished in the month of May. Once upon a time it was impossible climb for me.. and when I look back... dammmnn ... I climbed this konkankada twice. Summit was very easy but when I see the tough journey which brought us to the summit was the most blissful experience of my life. Thanks to all to those who were part and supported for this dream climb. We haven't posted much photos of konkankada climb because a big film is coming.. stay tuned.😃 @shivdurga_mitra_lonavala @4play.in @shivamaher @magicpixels_photography @nandu_chavan Shot on @gopro @goproin #Gopro #goproindia #natgeoyourshot #mypixeldiary #yourshot_india #_woi #_soi #indiaclicks #_coi #storiesofindia #photographers_of_india #oph #dslrofficial #indianphotography #igramming_india #lonelyplanetindia #i_hobbygraphy #indianshutterbugs #maharashtra_ig #maharashtra_desha #MaiBhiSadakChap #insta_maharashtra #people_infinity #humanity_shots_ #indianphotographyclub #portraitsofficial

Dukes Nose... This mountain holds a very special place in my heart♥. My play ground, my home ground. 🧗🏻‍♂ I saw this huge mountain in 2002 for the very 1st time. I never thougt that one day I could climb this but 9 year back (3 May 2010 ) on the same day I climbed this mountain with my climbing partner, @geedhganesh I took 3 hours on my 1st climb. That was my very 1st experience on vertical wall. Later on I climbed this pinnacle hundreds of times. Few years later I climb this same wall in just 30 min 11 sec. It could be the fastest climb in the history of Duke's Nose so far. This climb brought love in my life.. I would say the most precious gift to me from Duke's Nose... that is @gypsy_queen_1123 In 2014 I walk my 1st highline on Duke's nose and that was the India's first highline (rigged and walked by Indian ). Not only a good climber but he made me India's first highliner. After this I walked many highling on the same place.. one after another. Like Duke's Nose is setting new challanges and goals for me. Duke's Nose is my mentor. I have learned so many thing from him, and still learning. Whenever I feel low I go to Duke's Nose, I used to talk with him, I share my thought with him. I share my happiness with him. For me Duke's Nose is not just a mountain of rock. In the journey of my adventure he became my mentor, my teacher and my best friend. .

Nine years passed and today we here today.... me and @geedhganesh have been climbing together since 2010. Sarasgad was our first climbing, without knowing anything about each other we went for a climb. We trused blindly. That day I got my partner... partner in climb. We didn't stop there only. We became best friends, buddies, supporters. In 2009 we had plant a seed, beliving that one day we are gonna have a team, team of climbers. We just started putting efforts to grow our climbing community. Struggeled a lot for every individual thing. Things wasent easy, but we made it possible. Team of two to almost hundred.. and we are still growing. Happy 9th anniversary of our climbing partnership 😘. #partnership #partnerincrime #climbinglovers

Sons and fathers have their own little universe of trust.. @umbreyogesh and his son Meru has the same.. As the saying goes, like father, like son. It means that a son doesn’t only resemble his father in terms of appearance, but also behavior. So a future climber, rescurer and slackliner is coming..

Wooo.... I always like see and work on mega structures. Last whole week I spent on a shipping yard, Alang Gujrat. Just imagine the whole week on mega ships and oil rigs. On every step I was understang new things. Everything I saw was so huge. I was collecting knowledge as much as I can.. tried to understand the process of work. Of course it is not possible to understand everything in 6 days , but one thing I understood.. all these mega structure are running on very small things.. and every individual small thing playing an important role these mega structures. Meanwhile I couldnt stop myself from balancing on this giant chain, You can say mega slackline 🤣. #megastructure #ship #ocean #job
