Ramanagara (or Ramanagaram, or Ramnagara) is a town about 50 km southwest of Bangalore, along the highway to Mysore. It has a large number of granite domes peppered around it, with climbs ranging from one to four pitches in length.

Getting There 

Take the Mysore Highway from Bangalore (see map). There are also trains every hour that go from Bangalore and Mysore with stops at Ramanagara. It's a roughly one hour train ride and about 45 minutes by car from Bangalore city limits. If riding the train, many climbs are near enough that one can ride an auto-rickshaw to the crag. Some crags (Achalu, for instance) can also be reached by a local bus from Ramanagara. Most crags are no more than a 15-minute drive from the town center). Approaches from the road are 5 to 20 minutes long.

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
