Hanchihalli, Tumkur

  • Grade context: US


Hanchihalli, Tumkur Road.


Hanchihalli is about 85 kms from the center of the city, and a two-hour and some minutes car ride away, with some potential for bouldering and some roped climbing routes.

Sohan - "It just so happens that a set of friends, Gowri and Paul, have a family farm here, and I ended up creating a single bolted line on a project that Paul had been aspiring to get on it for half a decade. The single line is quite an enjoyable line, and there are some potential projects in the area. If you happen to be in the area, might as well, realize more routes, aside from enjoying these two."


To get there, turn off the highway at Dabbaspete.

The Bread Loaf boulder, with the two existing route and the project are, is to your right at the location.

Grade Route

The prominent cracked boulder is about 50-40 feet, depending on which side you look at it from. Sits higher on the down slope.

On a family camping trip with kids, decided to check out Paul’s long pending desire to get on top of this high ball, via the chimney.

The route starts from the east of the chimney, and cuts diagonally across in the chimney to the west.

A good thin ledge to use that goes diagonally. The crux is after the last bolt, unprotected traverse to mantle up to the top.

Exit: Currently, the exit it by the way of slinging a large boulder. Will need 20 feet of cordage or webbing.

FFA: Ground up onsight by Sohan, supported by Paul Rosolie & Gowri Varanashi


On the north face of the Bread Loaf boulder.

Finger to hand crack, likely traverses all the way to the east face of the boulder, with possibility to top out, once the crack hits the top right corner.
