Description 

South face/wall of Achalu offers opportunity for multiple splendid multi-pitch routes that go all the way to the summit.

The face is exposed to the sun in the am, so start really early (7am). It comes in complete shade by 3pm, it is generally more pleasant to climb then.

As of March there is one 4 pitch route, Broomberg. In my view this is the best route in all of Achalu, as of now.

Getting There 

All other areas of Achalu are accessed via the Avruti farmhouse trailhead.
For Broomberg, drive past the Avruti turning for another

4 pitchesP1: 5.7+ 33m, starts slabby, about 7-8 bolts to the anchor.P2: 5.8, 33m, continues to be slabby, mostly legwork. Ends on a nice grassy ledge/cave; one can stand/sit there, about 1.5 metres from the anchor; carry a long sling.I prefer to combine P1 and P2 with a 60m rope by having the belayer move up to bolt 1 at a suitable time. The grade eases closer to the P2 belay, so the rope drag is manageable.P3: 5.10a, 30m: This is by far the best pitch. Very distinctive rock ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
