I started climbing at an age of 15. One day climber/highliner Rohit Vartak visited my school and his words moved me. I along with one of my friends visited the Shivdurga Climbing wall, and there I saw him (Rohit sir) highlining and everything just stuck in my mind. From that day itself, I started climbing, and within a year I was able to walk on Highline too.
I aim to represent India on an International platform and raise awareness among people about sports because the majority of the people in India are still not aware of my sports and grow the community.
He wants to explore as many areas he can for climbing like Khopoli, Sethan, Shayadri, Bangalore. In Highline also, he aims to walk 300m long unwalked line in Lonavala and also in Jivdhan fort.
