Hey. I'm going to sri lanka in a couple of months, and I want to do some climbing. I've been searching the web but didn't find any information. I'm mostly looking for boulders. Has anyone been there?

I was in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago. We were unable to find any good, developed areas.

There are some tour guide companies offering what looks like top-rope scrambles. And there's a giant hunk of limestone called Sigiriya, which is not for climbing and has a staircase to the top.

Basically, there is some promising bit of rock here and there, but nothing of quality has been established.

For bouldering, you're best to head north to Hampi, in India. It's amazing.
