Rock Climbing Photo: Hueco huarming up
My girlfriend and I are in India visiting her friends and family in Pune. We are planning on visiting Hampi for a few days. We are trying to figure out a place to stay, fairly nice, bathrooms a plus, good location to boulders and amenities(food). We would like to keep it under Rs.$2500 or $50US per night. Any suggestions on where to boulder, eat and stay would be greatly appreciated. Also, climbing info around Pune would be cool as well.
Thanks a bunch,

So in hampi there are two separate sides, the island and the temple side. The island side has a few nicer hotels but 3 star at best but most are run of the mill guesthouses. There is a badass Cultural Resort owned by the gov't, temple side When I was there a year ago there were power cuts also. Most of the hard bouldering is on the temple side on the other end of the street opposite the temple. The island has Goa corner, and Cosmic Cave. Be careful because the river can fluctuate dramatically in height and you can get stuck. This means you will have an 1 1/2 car ride to get back to Hospet. Hospet might have a few decent hotels then you can commute. Another thing, there is a kid who has a great deal of mats and gear he will rent to you. Ask the people in the first restaurant, or continue down road to the place with the swings and they will know how to find him. Goa Corner is a scary walk at night so you've been warned, but has mats, chalk , and shoes. I don't know of any gear on the temple side of the river. Don't plan for climbing equipment to be for sale there or guide shops, they don't exist. John Schrumpf
