Description

Banyan Tree Pillar is a heavily featured (by Indian granite standards) tower with a handful of high-quality two-pitch trad routes. Descent is a rappel off the top from slings.

Edit: There is now a pair of bolts with rap rings. A single 70 m rope should get you down the backside, from where you walk clockwise (climber's left) and descend the trail around the tower, back to the approach trail.

Getting There
