Islamabad's only sport multipitch. Wonderful climb with an easy approach. The first pitch has no bolts. It is easy class 2/3 climbing until you get to the belay bolts. Bolts were removed from this pitch some years ago. Second pitch is easy to get lost at the start. There will be class 3 climbing involved until you get to the first bolt. Once you get to the first bolt, the rest of the route becomes more apparent. You can use a 60M rope for all the pitches but I would still strongly recommend a 70m rope due to the descent. I would not recommend linking pitches on this climb due to massive rope drag.

  1. 4a

  2. 5c

  3. 6b+ - One of the best routes in the entire city. Be careful with the first two bolts just before the crack. Please please do not use the fixed rope (if it's still there) to belay. Use the bolts to build your own anchor.

  4. 6c+

Descent beta: rappel normally until pitch 2. This is where having a 70m+ rope or two 60m ropes will come in handy. If you rappel with a 70m rope, you'll land on steep class 2 terrain so make sure you keep your stopper knots tied!!!!

Probably the most popular route in Islamabad. Locals primarily use this route for speed climbing competitions and intro classes for new climbers in Margalla Hills.
