Description 

One of the "must do" routes for the grade in Yangshuo. A great mix of overhanging and delicate face climbing leads to a very thin, tricky, and balancy crux near the top. Really fun to figure out, and pretty devious -- this would be a proud onsight. The end of the route heads left a touch before a bit of a runout to the anchors.


Location 

The center of the main face of Moon Hill, Apollo takes the obvious center line up the face through 2 small overlaps.


Protection 

8-10 bolts + 2 bolt chain anchor. Easy to top rope / project, and a nice safe lead.
