DescriptionDisclaimer: my beta is pretty rough as it has been almost a year since I've climbed here. The climbs roughly get harder as you go more right. So long as you can climb 5.11+ you'll be able to get up all of them. So be adventurous and have fun!
This may be the best crag in Manali. It features about 9 excellent sport routes. A few routes are a bit mossy, but the climbing itself is very fun. Everything is well protected and everything is sport. About 12 draws and a 60M ropes is all that is needed.
Getting ThereAs with all climbing in Manali, it is best to consult the local climbers and guides regarding directions.
However, that being said, what you will generally want to do is to cross the river and head right (south) on the Leh Manali Highway. Walk/ride for about a half Kilometer until you see a narrow road split off left. This ought to be Chichoga road. From here its almost a kilometer walk till the road ends. Once the road ends you will be quite close, maybe 1/4 kilometer away. You will have to weave through the remaining houses and follow a trail zigzagging up a re-entrant. You'll know the wall when you see it.
If you get lost (as is likely) ask the locals. They're friendly and know where the climbing area is.
