Description

Looking to scrub some moss, stumble through a thorny jungle and get a FA? Well this is the place for you... that is if you have some time to kill in between treks or during your busy life in Kathmandu.
It is unclear how much rock is in the discovered area but it looks as though there will be a few multi-pitch routes as well as numerous boulder problems in the coming years.
Like all places in Nepal the routes will be bolted but that might prove to be a challenge as the sandstone tends to be a little weak in some areas (so climb with the intention of flashing or you might loose crucial foot holds if you repeat attempts.)

Getting There

Take the road out of Balaju bypass north passing Nagarjun forest reserve entrance, Tien Piple village and then head up the ridge towards Shivapuri National Park once you reach the village in the pass between valleys. You will know you are in the right place once you pass an army training camp and arrive in Kakani.
The new area is on the north side of the ridge on a trail that heads down across from the Kakani guest house. you will reach a clifftop where you can either rap down 30+ meters or take your pad and hike around to the right.
