Description 

Pune is a metropolitan city in Maharashtra. There are two climbing areas at about 90 minutes drive from the city. The climbing season is roughly November through March. April, May is usually too hot to climb and June through October is the rainy season. The rock is basalt, and usually a little brittle, so care has to be taken. Most routes are single pitch sport climbs, but there are a couple of 3 or 4 pitch climbs too in Plus Valley.

Getting There 

Pune has an international airport and a train station and can be reached from any part of India.

This is a great route. It starts with a left lay back crack after which you have to go left to a ledge and up to the anchors. First bolt is quite high and there's quite a bit of run out between the fourth and fifth bolts where a cam can be placed in the right crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
