Well, this ought to be the best kept secret in Bangalore. Turahalli is a place which is hardly 20 kms from the city centre.
The place is awesome for Bouldering, may be the best Bouldering site in India.
There are boulders all around and every boulder has all kinds of routes on it. Every grade is available here.
We started off with warmup on the easy routes.
Thankfully, we had reached the place at around 10AM, rocks were still not very hot and still dry enough to climb.
The first boulder itself, had so many routes on it that we ended up spending almost an hour there.
Boulders with lot of overhang section are the most difficult ones. And here they are in plenty.
Nagu, trying out.
Purush also gave it a shot.
Even the smallest boulder are full of fantastic moves.
The top of this boulder is not a flat surface but it has upwards slope. The slope can not be seen from this angle. :D
Turahalli is truly a Boulderer’s paradise. It is at a kissing distance away from Bangalore, rather it is should be correct to say that, it is within the city limits.
Just make sure that you don’t come here on a hot and sunny afternoon, which rarely happens :D
