Description 

The rock/hillock bang opposite Achalu hill and Elba Rock.

South-facing and exposed to the sun all day. Offers a couple of single pitch cracks, chimneys, corner climbs. Very accessible. As of now we know of at least one route that is climbed, but many others are obvious; someone local with trad gear has to just go and climb them. Good place to practice trad leading, given the easy access and proximity to nearby sport climbs for backup.

Falls within Kumar's farmland; Kumar is a friendly farmer, loves chatting and hosts climbers on homestay basis.

Bidhiru Kallu = Cane Stone in Kannada

Getting There 

5 mins hike from Elba Rock; see map. Involves a wee bit of bushwhacking but with more climbers regularly accessing it, a trail should form easily.

The route has two cruxes. After a short bushwhacking to get to the start, the first crux is to get on the ledge below the crack. This is a boulder move about 5-6 feet high; delicate, about 6c move. Don't use the loose rock on your left to get up; the rock will fall any moment. And without that it does feel 6b+/6c.The main, nicer crux is at the start of the crack, the first move from the ledge. Powerful layback-stemming combinations for the first 8 odd feet...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
