Topo for Pahine Navri


Nashik is a city in northwestern Maharashtra that lies on the leeward side of the Western Ghats, and provides a striking illustration of the topography and gradients along the Deccan Plateau, with a continental divide of sorts running very close to the coast of the Arabian Sea. Despite being a mere 100 km from the west coast, Nashik is the source of the second longest Indian river, the Godavari, which flows eastward for nearly 1500 km before emptying into the Bay of Bengal.

Nashik is the jumping off point for a number of nearby crags and pinnacles in the Anjaneri and Satmala hills, built mostly from the vegetated basalt that characterizes most of the climbing in the Sahyadris.

Getting There 

Nashik can be reached by road or rail from Mumbai, typically in 4-5 hours.

Most of the climb is bridging, or stemming. Switching to face climb from bridging is crux. Rock is loose near summit. Moving to last but one bolt is sketchy with 20-25ft runout. Falling is no option. One can have fatal injury getting banged on the rock face of Sasara hill behind. It is advised to use an extra placement on the last pitch while approaching the final bolt on the scree to avoid a large runout. There are cracks for placing gear on the last scree section.Abseil:Summit-Station3-Ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
