Ibrahim's Farm

  • Grade context: US

Summary

Most routes here are old school trad routes, or routes with aging bolts, and one incomplete route with modern bolts. There is hardly an activity in the modern times.

Description

Ibrahim Farm located at the base of three major crag systems in the eastern part of Ramanagaram was at the epicenter some high-quality climbing energy during the late 1980s and 1990s. Starting in 1985, 'The Climbers' club initial forays led to establishing of trad routes around the location. The farm owner, Mr. Ibrahim was encouraging, and ‘The Climbers’ organised All India Rock Climbing Camps for IMF in 1987 and 1988.

To the north of the farm (or what remains of the farm), stand the twin towers of Anna-Thamma. These twin-towers are part of the Swamy Devara Betta crag system.

To the south, is a crag system consisting of two hills cut by a gully used as access to the top or the exit; the west face of the first crag is referred to as the Bhaijan Wall and has multiple old school trad lines.

Further south is the South Bhaijan Wall and has one stunning but incomplete route of high grade. To the South-West, is the Sidellu Kallu crag system with another two sets of stunning routes, both on chimneys (documented in the next chapter).

Most routes here are old school trad routes, or routes with aging bolts, and one incomplete route with modern bolts. There is hardly an activity in the modern times.

This area awaits exploration and revival. The Water wall routes further to the north on the Swamy Devara Betta, might contribute to revive these old lines.

**The grades are based on memories of older climbers.
