Pune is a metropolitan city in Maharashtra. There are two climbing areas at about 90 minutes drive from the city. The climbing season is roughly November through March. April, May is usually too hot to climb and June through October is the rainy season. The rock is basalt, and usually a little brittle, so care has to be taken. Most routes are single pitch sport climbs, but there are a couple of 3 or 4 pitch climbs too in Plus Valley.
