Getting there

Head South-west of Bangalore on the road towards Mysore. Approximately 50kms from bangalore lie Ramnagar and its granite hillocks.

About ...

Ramnagar is the mecca of climbers in south India because of the variety of climbing to be found here. The rock is granite,slightly technical with very good smearing, but chossy in places.Many of the established climbs have seen much traffic,so its not flaky. These granite hillocks are spread all round ramnagar,with heights of upto 300m
