The hillock is surrounded by private property belonging to GMR.

Initial run in with the local cops at Udanapalli, and with GMR security. Resolved ad hoc.

Locals can be suspicious of your activity. Engage amicably.

Gear needed: Rack upto #4

Starts on a block of rock, connects to another, gets on the face, and then connects to the off-width crack going diagonally left.

Couple of bolts were added on stance, and then, an anchor station was added when threatened by rain. The anchor station perverts the route and needs to be removed. Early attempts at ground up routes.

FFA: Sohan, Narayan Pai, and Karthik Vijayakumar.

1 5.8 G
2 5.5

Gear needed. Doubles of .5, .75, #1 & #2.

P1: 5.8G. 45 meters, 3 + 2 bolts. The takeoff on the block of rock, traverse right, and get onto the crack. If you have a tag line, exit from the station here. The route was partially ground up ascent by me. Tentative initial attempts at ground up climbing in early 2017. The rest of the route was rap bolted, hence the odd length of the route.

P2: 5.5. 20 meters. 0 + 0 bolts. Climb the easy slab, over the ridge, and get into a bucket on the other side, and belay your partner over, and walk off.

P1: 5.12b. 25 meters. 10 + 2 bolts

The corner moves are powerful, and on thin holds. Followed by 15 meters of finger crack. Three bolts were placed on this crack. If anyone wants to remove those three bolts, welcome to climb the route, and on gear, and can remove the bolts. The bolts are Rawl bolts and are easy to remove.

P2: 5.10a. 25 meters. 6 + 2 Bolts

The route angles left, and not terribly hard compared to P1!

P3: 5.4. 15 meters. 0 bolts

50-meter sport line on a Chimney.

One of the most stunning routes, I have been on. That moment, when you look down and the ground gives away, is an experience.

Look out for the beehives to the right of the route.

Starts as a squeeze chimney, and then then towards the end, is a stem-chimney.

P1: 5.10a. 29 meters. 9 + 2 Bolts

Start on slab, to squeeze chimney to corner stemming on the chimney to the anchors.

P2: 5.8. 20 meters. 6 + 2 bolts

Crux is transitioning to the chimney. Stem chimney, here on.

Exit: Two-pitch rap from P2. No other options.
