Hi Chockies - my latest trip report will cost 3min 36secs of your valuable day. I think its worth at least one star. Your thoughts?

Awesome! I particularly liked the sound track - soooooo much better than the crappy electronica that "enhances" most climbing clips these days.

How was the actual climbing? I've heard there's a lot of potential in the area, but that a lot of it would need bolts (which are or were hard to come by in India).

You are right - loads of potential here. But yeah quality anchors and bolts are hard to come by. Also there's other barriers like permit systems and other nonsense to deal with. Plus 90% of the year is hot or wet.

Climbing quality is generally nice with featured granite but very few crack lines. Which is why we did some serious scrub bashing to get the this line. It climbed like all the granite faces here, but without having to bolt it.

Yep, I'd give it at least a star for adventure alone!

I have been spoilt by PNG jungle, so regard the one in your clip lightweight by comparison, however the festy foot at 2.40 min into the clip made it for me ;-)

You get 5 stars for actually doing something in the heat. If it was me, i would be sitting under a fan drinking kingfisher. and lots of it.

I'm not sure which is worse - the music or the belaying!
