Comments: The route of red solid line on the attached topo photo is not the route "Via del Drago". The route "Via del Drago" on the attached photo is on the right to the red solid line. It is an off width vertical crack on the slightly overhanging brighter color wall which faces to the right on the topo photo.

Comments: "Disco Buttress" is also known as "Human Face Cliff" among local climbers. I'd personally guessed that "El Capitan" is a much more accurate translation.

Comments: The name "Apprentice Rock" should spell "Appentice". It means "an architectural structure above a gate in traditional east Asian style", instead of referring to "the relationship as Skywalker to Juda in Starwars movies". It is named after the rock shape and position, at school gate.

Comments: I personally talked to the respectable senior climber who claimed FA'ed on this route. He calls this route "79 Finals" and hates others call it 'F--- fall'.

Comments: It is sad that when the time climbing was not a very popular sport in Taiwan, during the darkest decades of military marshal law ruling, senior climbers before 1980's~1990's usually shared their climbing history and records only to very limited groups of people, for example, only to their climbing clubs or very limited circulated magazines (while the clubs or magazines had long been vanished or very hard to obtain by today). Not knowing who's who or where's where or what's what, it is not uncom... more >>

Comments: see diagram as in the URL

the texts are in Chinese.

The climbers claimed FA on bolted routes 1 and 2 on the diagram, while "string bikini" is route 4 and the so-called "kevlar vest" is believed to be route 3. Sadly we may have conflicts at the upper parts of the routes 2 and 3.

The words from the climbers who claimed FA on "www.climbing.org/showthread.php?p=25671"..

Comments: The name "" ("da4-gu3") means "Big Drum", not "Big Canyon" (where "Drum" and "Canyon" sound identical ("gu3") in Chinese). Many routes in "Music Hall" are named after music instruments.
