Description 

India, the second most populous country in the world, and home to a variety of excellent climbing. From mystical Hampi in the south to the the Himalayan peaks of the north, India has something to offer climbers of every persuasion.


Getting There 

The largest airport (with generally the cheapest flights) is in Mumbai. From here, you can get to almost anywhere in the country via train.

Leh'd Back 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b  Asia : India : Shey Rock
Bolted in April of 2013 this route is an excellent outing. The first pitch (5.10b) starts from a ledge above the route "Taley (5.9 / 5b ) and continues up a prominent prow.
