Jyoti Raju is an Indian free solo climber, born in the state of Karnataka.[1] He earned himself the title Monkey Man by climbing the tall stone structures and walls at the historically famous Chitradurga Fort, Karnataka,[2] without the help of ropes with a technique he learned from monkeys. He does not climb for sports, but to entertain the visitors to the fort.[3][4][5][6]
