Comments: This route is named Big Canyon (J or da gu). Like many other routes at Music Hall, it is equipped with reliable glue-in bolts. 5.11b is a fair grade.

Comments: Many Tonsai visitors are willing to accept the risks incurred by being in a place filled with balls-out people engaged in higher-risk activities. Some feel there is inspiration to be found in witnessing those who push the envelope.

Comments: Long Dong currently has around 500 routes on high quality sandstone up to 70 meters high, including sport routes (5.5 to 5.14a), trad up to 5.12c, and bouldering. The area is on the Northeast Coast of Taiwan about 45 minutes from central Taipei City, and also offers great swimming and diving, hiking, amazing seafood and friendly Taiwanese culture.

Comments: If you can touch the first hold at all, you likely will find the subsequent steep climbing more difficult than the start. At 5'9", white, overweight and unable to touch a basketball net, I could latch the jug. I found the climbing above to be pumpy and nice; only the back-scratching tree branches detract from the quality.

It should be noted that this route is probably more like 12 meters right of Wake & Bake (the first route right of W&B is By Way of Deception, another nice route wi... more >>

Comments: If you're missing Valley jams while on Tonsai, check out this route.

This is the most impressive limestone crack I've ever seen. It is steep, tall, wide, and unrelenting. It looks like a granite fist crack and appears from the base as if one could use #4 Camalots to protect it... about 20 of 'em. In fact it climbs more like limestone than granite, there are features, making for some gymnastic movement--complete with fists! Damn burly and inspiring route.

Comments: New bolts as of early '07.

Devious and sustained, with multiple cruxes.

Perhaps harder than Caveman and nearly as good.
