Comments: Fantastic route to teach trad-leading on. Bolts right next to the crack. Also, not a 5.7, I think 5.4-5.5 is more accurate, but it was fun.

Comments: I have climbed this several times and think the lengths are off. P1 is more like 30 ft. (40 tops). Also hass a very easy anchor at the top.

Comments: All of these routes are top-rope(able). Just approach the face from the top and not too much exposure to get to the anchors (IMOP).

Comments: Correct and more accurate map coordinates. Stay high and to the right as you approach the falls/main area. You will want this easy approach from the top if you are setting topropes.

Comments: Eric, The approach for setting topropes is super easy. Just keep walking along the top of the cliff (instead of turning right and walking to the bottom of the wall). Some routes have bolt anchors (reachable from the top) and placing gear for the others is possible.
I think all of the routes are toprope-able (I haven't tried, but it seems pretty possible).

Comments: This site shows some great looking climbs in QingDao for anyone looking for a side trip. If you go, the Qingdao beer festival in mid summer is pretty fun too.

Comments: I'll agree with Stephen, it ain't the best, but it sure is the closest. And yeah, this is a top-rope ONLY area.

This place gets visits b/c most climbing in BJ requires a full day commitment, but BaiWang can be a spot for a quick afternoon of climbing when you just want to leave the city for an afternoon.

Comments: THIS AREA IS NOW CLOSED by the local police.

I asked and it seems that drivers on the road complained about climbing belaying in the middle of the road and blocking the road as they watched freinds climb. It seems to me that this closure was due to lack of attention of previous climbers and the irritation of the drivers. The land onwer and the neighbor (to the cliff) had no problem with us; just the drivers on the road. Maybe if the Mn Access fund or another group reaches out to the t... more >>

Comments: Directions advice:

To get to the climbs drive down the very small dirt road into the woods, past the old stone walls and you will see a turn out, just big eoungh for one car about 100 feet before the tall railroad bridge. park there, don't go under the railroad bridge, otherwise you will pass the climbs.

Comments: K Ice,

I am confused by your comment, I was there just last week and there was a roof. Also the rock matched the picture in my guide book which is at least 4 years old. could you elaborate on what you mean?
