Batu Caves is a large limestone outcrop famous for its temple which draws in thousands of Hindu devotees every year. The main attraction is its 272 steps leading up to the main temple which is situated 100 meters above the ground and inside a large cave. However what I came to know only recently is that Batu Caves is also a hot spot for a very different sort of activity. What I’m referring to is rock climbing the limestone and granite walls of the mountain. In total Batu Caves has 8 different crags and a total of 170 routes.
