Laqlouq

Climbs 26 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1732m a.s.l

Site features

Laqlouq is a great climbing site that is composed of four Sections. The sections offer excellent
routes for beginning climbing both sports and traditional.

How to get to the climbing sites:

Take right at the Changrillah Hotel and continue till you reach the ski lifts in Laqlouq. Park your car
and continue on foot on the dirt road. The Ski lifts would be parallel on your left hand side. Walk
approximately 300 meters and you should arrive at the rst climbing site. If you look across the
eld ahead of you, you will notice 3 triangular shaped rocks. The middle big one is the Section IV.
!!!! NOTICE !!!!!:

!!!! NOTICE !!!!!: To get to Section IV of the climbing site in Laqlouq you have to pass through
private land. The land owner has lots of vegies grown there so please be careful. Furthermore, the
land owner doesn't like trespassers and the starting bolts may have been damaged intentionally. I
would recommend accessing Section IV from this way: 1. Left from sector II along the dirt road.
This will get you to the top of crag and then you would have to rap down to the ledge which is the starting point of all upper four routes. Alternatively, you could walk across the eld behind the small hut and scramble
up to the begining of the lower routes. With this method, you have to multipitch to get to the upper
routes.
