Hello, I’m Jerry (Vikram), a professional rock climber and certified adventure instructor based in Hampi, Karnataka.
I am a local from Hampi and grew up here in the breath-taking nature surrounded by rock formations. For me, climbing the boulders was the most natural thing to do from a young age. This game turned into my passion at the age of 14, when I started climbing professionally.
I turned my passion for climbing into my profession 10years ago when I opened the first climbing shop in the area with a friend (“Tom and Jerry Climbing Shop”). Since 2019 I run a climbing and adventure shop on my own under the name "Golden Boulders Climbing & Adventure Shop". Our activities aim to reconnect children and adults with nature and to experience themselves in different activities. We do this through classes, day trips or longer programs. In my 10 years of professional experience as a climbing and adventure instructor, I have been able to gain a wide range of experience.
At “Golden Boulders Climbing & Adventure Shop” we carry out the adventure activities with the highest safety standards. In order to guarantee the safety of my clients, I regularly participate in professional trainings. I am certified several times, by national and international institutions:
Wilderness First Responder
(NOLS WILDERNESS MEDICINE; US)
Top Rope Guide Course
(Professional Climbing Guides Institute; US)
