DescriptionBhumi. The name comes from the fact the Bhushan and Mike (who bolted the route) had to struggle a lot to clean the route from the very beginning. Bhu+Mi
Pitch 1 (80ft/6a): Easy, balancy moves on slab till 3rd bolt. Rest of the pitch has 6a moves. Precise footwork needed. Shift towards left to reach the 1st station.
Pitch 2 (50ft/6c+): Move towards left, bolts can be easily spotted. After 2 easy clips, there's a crux section. There are two methods to tackle the crux. There is a fairly wide (open hand) under-cling. One can go from left of it(towards the bolt)(6c+ move)or from slightly right side using a tiny flake(6c move). Taller climbers have an advantage as they are able to clip before attempting the crux move. Rest of the pitch has moves ranging 6a-6b. station 2 is above the hump/roof towards right after climbing 20-25 ft past the crux section.
Pitch 3 (50ft/4+): Easy Traverse towards right with 5 bolts to clip. Go around the big block of rock to reach Station 3.
Pitch 4 (70 ft/6b+): Vertical+ Overhanging crack. Starts with a nice vertical hand crack(6a+/6b)for approx. 55ft. Slightly overhanging finger crack approx. 15 ft. Then top out with some high feet moves. Station 4 is in the shape of kitchen sink towards left. Probably the best pitch in the whole climb.
Pitch5 (60ft/6a+): 2-3 relatively harder/scary moves. High feet and knee bar can be used in these sections. There will a point where you may not find the last bolts, climb towards left and not towards right, then you can see the bolts. Very firm tree on the top can be used to set up belay for the follower. Tree is on a near flat ground. One can belay very comfortably.
