From the Orvakal Rock Garden entrance walk towards the lake. Half way, before reaching the Lovers Wall area, there is a tall stand-along rock with a long vertical crack on the left side of its face. Start at the short vertical crack 6 feet right of the long vertical crack. The first move is the crux for a short person. Traverse left along a ledge to the long vertical crack. Follow it all the way up.

4 out of 5 stars First Ascent

Ranga Vudukuru, a climber based in Hyderabad, took me to Orvakal Rock Garden for the first time. He suggested that I lead up the long vertical crack. I found the start to be difficult, probably a 5.8 move. Since it was my first lead climb in India, to be safe, I chose to start at the short vertical crack to the right. I used two medium-sized cams and one nut for this route.
