Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) All Sport climbing29 routes in region
The predominant ethic is sports climbing.
As the nation's capital, Islamabad has always had a vibrant climbing community though until recently it has been more focused on mountaineering than sports climbing. The sports climbing scene really took off in 2010 with the development of a significant number of quality sports climbs in the Margallah Hills when visiting UK climber John Arran teamed up with the local climbing elite who had been honing their skills at the recently opened Ibex climbing centre. For an excellent history of rock climbing in Islamabad read John Arran's 2011 article 'Islamabad Cragging' which can be found on the UK Climbing website; www.ukclimbing.com.
