Solid granite, tough on the fingers and fun climbs.
Currently hosts 4 lead routes (possibly 5) on the north face. The first twp can be set up for top rope by scrambling up the east-facing slab (you can hike up all the way to the summit for some gorgeous views and a family picnic, but it is a bit delicate, exposed, not to be attempted on a potentially rainy day).
These routes were developed by Keerthi Pais in early 2000's, and Rasta Cafe was meant to be a climber-hangout, with its own little climbing wall too.
BCI/Sohan et al have since built it further by making them lead routes or bolting new routes.
The left side routes have no more than 3-4 bolts and increase to about 6 bolts on the right-most route, with double bolt anchors and maillons.
You will see the slabby East face hiking side of the hill. The climbs are further to the right (North side). About 15 mins hike.
