Description 

The long beautiful Sangla valley has several nice crags and lots of potential for future development. To the northeast are some massive big walls, some of which have been climbed (see AAC trip reports). In general the rock is more solid granite, with nice trad cracks and slab.

All the routes described here can be climbed with a 60m rope.

Getting There 

Sangla is a town with hotels and amenities, but most crags are farther up the valley. Staying at the villages of Batseri or Raksham are good options. Hitching up and down the road is not a problem.

At the moment this is just a top-rope, with a directional bolt halfway up. The lower slab is tough (or you can try the arete), up to a roof which you follow left, then you get a thin crack for a bit until another slab. To set up the rope you need to lead Farmer or Warrior....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
