Access issues inherited from Badami

Bring 5, 10mm bolt hangers and 10 mm metric nuts to get you out of trouble. Badami has a hanger thief.


Grab at tuk tuk and say A rung a na ta, mind the spelling. Or temple with stairs. Looking at the bus station take a tuk tuk left, and just on the outskirts of town you will see a yellow arch way with concrete road heading towards a water tower. Follow the dirt road up to stairs.

Grade Route

Crag classic, you will see a small shrine on the right hand side of staircase as you near the rocks. Take this and follow the wall around to find ganesha. Or walk to temple intersection turn right down gully and right again at end of gully.

First route when you hike up the stairs to the temple intersection on the left

Bouldery start leading to 7a climbing, nice route. On your left as you approach the temple intersection. To the left of the 6c arete climb, small tree below anchors.

Awesome technical route, as you enter the main intersection of temple rock. Looking at the temple route is on the left and close to arete. Must do One anchor bolt broken

Good looking line as you near the top of the stairs on the left hand side. Long moves, slight overhang. Unfortunately bolted with indian made hangers not to spec, climb at own risk.

Nice climbing On the left wall when looking at the temple One anchor broken

Really good at the grade On the right wall when looking at the temple

These routes start at the left obvious corner when looking down into the alley from the temple intersection. Starting with the obvious and impressive line on the corner.

Awesome route, thin and technical start leading in to a powerful and exciting finish. On the arete you see head on, as you enter the temple intersection.

Pumpy meets technical, worth every bit of pain. On the left hand side before you reach the 7c+ traverse. Starts with nice sloper, hook your way up!

Technical left traversing line, with solid crux. Walking down the gully straight in the direction you entered the temple intersection. On the left hand side after the 7b.

Awesome, awesome route, pumpy long throws on great rock. Start same as the 7c+ but head right. Must do

In the large crack, dark, dirty and not the best looking bolts.

Crazy crux start to beautiful finish. Next climb past the 6c+ Up the arete of the large crack

Really nice climbing, on the left just after the large crack (Roquest) Straight up.

Super route. Starting from the 7bs first bolt and traversing right onto arete and up to the anchors of Kilians project on the south face.

The sea of suffering Classic route going up the main south wall right face. Technical, pumpy and a sting in the tail.

Same start as Samsara but head straight, through ridiculous crimps to an even crazier looking headwall. South face right side of gully.

Super classic pump fest, jug broken at start giving it an upgrade. Start on the ground, no boulder starts. Right hand route going up the main south wall right face. Must do

These routes are on the right side when hiking down from the temple junction starting on the bottom / south face

South face left wall, crazy overhanging line.

Exciting and scary Opposite wall to the roquest wall, this line traverses left and up the arete. Exposure

Balance climbing on good rock. To the right of the 6a+ arete climb.

Balance route, on the grey rock. On the right of the other 6a+, opposite the 7c+ traverse.

Short and pumpy route, back to the temple go straight and just down and on the left of gully. Starts with a small roof.

It is unclear which routes these are - they are just placeholders to be removed in the future.
