Description 

Savanadurga is a 1200 ft tall monolithic granite hill (some claim it is the largest monolithic rock in Asia), with remnants of a 400 year old fort built on it. As of 2015, the rock contains over a dozen established routes, most about 6 - 8 pitches long, ranging in difficulty from 5.5 friction slab to 5.11+. Most of the routes are on south or south-east facing aspects of the hill, and can get pretty hot except in the cooler Winter months (Dec-Feb). From the top of the hill, you walk off to the right along a pilgrim's path. Give yourself at least a half-hour for the descent.

Belandingalu, in the local Kannada, means the light of the full moon. This fantastic line has one of the easier approaches of the routes that go up the main south face of Savandurga Hill. Seven pitches of mostly bolted climbing gets you on top of the giant granite monolith. P1 (5.7): Follow a system of cracks/flakes to a bolted anchor on a ledgy area above the foliage. Protects well with stoppers and cams in the fingers to hand sizes. P2: (5.9 PG13): Make a few delicate 5.9 moves from the anchor...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
