Ankatalwand Rock Climbing
The view of Ankatalwand from the left side.
Also know as the Westwand because it's on the west side, this side is much shadier and cooler. Sections of it also seep water for a long time after rain, so avoid it if it's been raining lately. A day or two of rain will be fine though.
This side is typically vertical and technical. There are pockets, but the climbing tends to follow small edges.
