This "area" is a climbing off of the Bangalore - Kanakapura Road and those off the Kanakapura - Ramanagara Road. For now, the Kanakapura vicinity contains the bouldering and cragging around Raogodlu and the multipitch climbing at BM Betta.

Getting There 

The town of Kanakapura itself is less than an hour drive south from the southern parts of Bangalore. Raogodlu is about halfway between NICE Road and Kanakapura, along the Kanakapura Highway. Getting to BM Betta from Bangalore typically requires taking the highway south to Kanakapura then turning right onto the road to Ramanagara. Raogodlu may be relatively easily accessed by buses to Kanakapura (plus a less than half-hour walk from Yadamadu, where you'd get off the bus). BM Betta is more remote, and requires a car, preferably a high-clearance vehicle (or an extra 20-minute walk).

Six pitches of mostly bolted climbing on easy slab gets you to a beautiful summit. P1: 5.6, 180', 6 bolts. After the first bolt, the rock is mossy, but with good solid holds. Watch out on this section during the rainy season. Use a long sling on the third bolt.P2: 5.4, 180', 3 bolts. Starts off on a gentle third class slab, and gradually gets steeper. The last 40' requires some easy technical climbing.P3: 5.6+, 165',...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
