Description

This is one of the first crags as you drive into Ramanagaram from Bengaluru. The routes are pretty steep, even overhanging, a nice break from the slab climbing that characterizes much of the climbs in this region. North-facing crag, the routes are in shade pretty much the whole day, except for a few hours mid-day.

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.

Getting There

Driving from Bengaluru, Rasta Cafe is 23 kms from Nice Road junction, Kengeri, right turn off Bengaluru-Mysuru highway but it takes 24 kms driving in order to do a U-turn and reach it. After the U-turn drive 50m past Rasta Cafe and take the small road on the left, follow it for about 500m and park opp the upcoming chicenn feed factory.

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.
