This is the best near Leh, Ladakh. We initially found it and used it to train some local guides in basic rock climbing. It turned out to be so fun that we went back out there several times. The obvious white numbers were painted by the army who from time to time uses it for training. Don't climb directly on top of the Buddhist graffiti. There are some decent top ropes and lots of multi-pitch trad lines. UPDATE 2013 we now have 20 bolted sport routes with more to come.
Get a taxi and go to Shey. It is about a 20 minute ride. You will drive about a 400 meters past the crag to find a bridge that crosses the small creek and then you can turn back to the left and drive all the way to the base of the climbing. Day trips are guided by Suhail and Jumyung from their bouldering café GraviT.

The crux is getting up into the crack at the second bolt, it takes using the right side cling while jamming the left hand and foot into the crack then laying back to get the right side of your body in. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
