This is the best near Leh, Ladakh. We initially found it and used it to train some local guides in basic rock climbing. It turned out to be so fun that we went back out there several times. The obvious white numbers were painted by the army who from time to time uses it for training. Don't climb directly on top of the Buddhist graffiti. There are some decent top ropes and lots of multi-pitch trad lines. UPDATE 2013 we now have 20 bolted sport routes with more to come.
Get a taxi and go to Shey. It is about a 20 minute ride. You will drive about a 400 meters past the crag to find a bridge that crosses the small creek and then you can turn back to the left and drive all the way to the base of the climbing. Day trips are guided by Suhail and Jumyung from their bouldering café GraviT.

Bolted in April of 2013 this route is an excellent outing. The first pitch (5.10b) starts from a ledge above the route "Taley (5.9 / 5b ) and continues up a prominent prow. The first pitch is vertical and pumpy (5.10b) but well protected. The second and third pitches (5.7) are lower angle with plenty of breathtaking views of the Himalayas and the exposure off climbers right. The second pitch belay is by far one of the most scenic I have been on. It's pure fun on great rock. This route wi...[more] Browse More Classics in International
