Achalu, Malavalli, Kanakapura

  • Contexte de la cotation : US


There are about half a dozen old routes and one new route on this impressive hillock.


Achalu (not the same as the one at Ramanagara), is about 70 km to the south-south-west, on the Kanakapura road. Much before Sathanur turn off to Kabbaldurga.

All routes are long trad routes.

The left diagonal crack, cutting left to right, is quite evident, when you look at the north facing profile of the Achalu hillock. The local villagers have asserted that climbers were seen on that section, on a couple of occasion.

The identity of the climbers or the route is unknown. The route remains to be explored.

Corner off width to the right of the middle of the north facing profile.

Gear needed, a rack, all the way upto #3 or #4. No wide gear needed. Doubles of #1, #2 & #3 would help.

An obvious crack, with first 18 feet of really hard climbing. Sunny ‘bammed’ past this section, climbed the 5.10c diagonal crack, and continued on the 5.10a crack, with one anchor station in the middle.

A rap station was established about 40 meters off the ground and requires double ropes to exit.

Route credit: Sunny Jamshedji. Supported by Sohan, Narayan, and Karthik.

A variation of the Ang Kami route, veering off left, after about 150 odd feet, as per the topos provided by Kamalesh Venugopal

Start on the slab, and connect to the crescent shaped crack, and veer left.

Usual, bold old school route.

FFA: Gunda Srinivas and team
