Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Taley 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  Asia : India : Shey Rock
This is the route that ascends the face just to the left of the painted #7. A great pitch but harder than it looks. The crux is getting from the slab up into the first crack, and then from that face, over the roof, into the next crack. Well bolted at both curxes. A fun outing is to link this pitch with Leh'd Back which is above and to the left of this route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
