Savandurga is about 60km west from Bengaluru. It is a monolithic granite massive with several multi pitch routes just behind the village.
Some of the routes are bolted (8mm) but the pitches have typically long runouts. Some of the rock is brittle, especially at the lower pitches so be careful. It is also adviseable to bring some additional gear (friends and nuts). The way down is an easy walk (take right when arriving on top).
Located next to Savandurga village, near Magadi town, on Bangalore-Magadi Road.
Below this rock there is a temple (very few people live there), where people mainly visit for praying. But very few go to the top and whoever goes takes the relatively easy round about path. Next the temple there is a botanical garden maintained by the govt. of Karnataka.
