Badami Rock Climbing Trip

Beyond any doubt, Badami is THE paradise for Rock Climbers.

Pictures will speak for themselves. A photo log of the year end climbing trip.

Badami Rock Climbing First Day

It has the most wonderful lead routes and equally crazy bouldering moves.

Badami Rock Climbing Bouldering Crazy Dyno

It’s a big crazy dyno move.


Badami Rock Climbing 20ft first clip

There are more than 200 bolted routes. But sad to say that some of the burden-to-the-society people have stolen the starting hangers :( Very bad, which has resulted in some really high first clips. Like this one at more than 20ft.

Badami Rock Climbing Lead

The rocks are made up of sandstone and limestone. Thus we could climb for 4 continuous days. Compared to Ramanagram granites, they are super smooth, very very nice.

Badami Rock Climbing Divya

Badami Rock Climbing Bouldering Dil Route

Some bouldering routes are really scary, like this one with the finishing hold at more than 25ft.

And some are really technical.

Badami Cave Temples

Apparently, for non-climbers, Badami is most famous for its Cave Temples.
