Description

Morning shade, with some afternoon sun. Amazing view of the Annapurnas, as well as the river below the cliffs. As for crowds, the only crowds were children watching in awe as we climbed. The area is a bit of a ghost town, left over from its glory days of attracting tourists to a large nearby cave (which is supposed to also be pretty cool).

The rock is sharp, pocketed, mostly low-angle limestone, with a few overhanging routes mixed in. Rock quality seemed pretty good, with several single and multi pitch sport options. All bolted responsibly, with great cement belay areas and stairs. About 10 routes just above the stairs, and a separate section off to the left with a few more (maybe the gems of the area?).

Small town, limited lodging/food options. Cold beer available in the winter or when electricity is working.

More beta is available from Hardcore Nepal Trekking Company (Thamel, Kathmandu), or Adrenaline Rush Whitewater Rafting Company (Lakeside, Pokhara).

Getting There

If you are traveling by road between Kathmandu and Pokhara, and want to check this out on the way, it is 59km southeast of Pokhara, or about 140km northwest of Kathmandu. This sounds vague, but there's only one road, so if your bus driver knows where to stop, it's easy to find. The access point is directly across the road from "Helen and Rocky Land," a hotel/restaurant that we do not recommend. Walk 1 minute up the steps to the obvious cliff.

Several brand new routes, the new bolts are still shiny on the dark rock so its easy to find the routes. There is even 2 toilets and running water for the climbers 10 meters from the wall.

Counting just under 20 routes here now. Some are quite long, our 50 meter rope was not long eanough for all.

Chill place. Wery glad we came here. Apr 9, 2017
