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 60 m rope should get you down the backside, from where you walk right and descend the trail around the tower, back to the approach trail.

Getting There

See map for location. Park at 12.90399 N, 77.29062 E, and hike up about a quarter mile. Pillar location:12.90616 N, 77.28969 E

Louvre is indeed a classic! Like no other climb in Bangalore area, to my knowledge. The rappel is about 33m long, so you need to use doubles or a 70m single to get off. Apr 2, 2017
