are you wedded to mt abu? I don't remember anything quality around there. There's stuff just east of Delhi but further south, hampi, badami or north, manali etc is a better bet.

I climbed at mt Abu about 10 years ago, we went there on a trip around India, not specifically for climbing.

There were some quite nice granite slabs with drilled pegs for protection that were well spaced and relatively old. The route we did was about 30 metres high

Mt Abu was quite nice in that it's up a hill and therefore cooler than the surrounding plains. however I wouldnt really rate it as a climbing destination as there wasn't much there really. but if youu are travellIng in the area, then there is some climbing to do there. the place is Very popular for honeymooning Indians.

Ah cool! Thanks for the advice...keep it coming.

Not tied to anything just keeping relatively North to avoid the weather as best we can (unfortunatly summer is the only time we have long periods off work to make it viable to travel to far away places).

Anyone know much re type of rack gear etc needed for area or just take a range and see how it goes...

Thanks :-)
