The folks I've been in touch with caution that there's a change there wont be any climbers around at this time. I still couldn't pass up an opportunity to check out this area.

Seeing as Getu is one of the most incredible natural features around to climb, I went ahead and bought a plane ticket (I'm currently teaching in Vietnam).

From what I've heard, July is hot and rainy, but not bad enough to prevent climbing in Yangshuo, which is further south and at a lower latitude. So I figured why not.

The other destination in China I was looking at was Liming, which sounds like Indian Creek sandstone. Some climbers told me it is rainy there as well in the summer. So bad combination of rain, sandstone and cams. I was in Yangshuo during a rainy spring, and it was still fine climbing in light rain as they were mostly slightly overhanging karsts.

If anyone else is planning on making it to the area - or will be in Yangshuo and interested in Getu, let me know and we can link up.

Great, I'll pm you. And just an update, a buddy from my school will be joining me July 21 to August 2nd, but we're definitely looking for others to climb with.

And yeah, we're bracing for a hot one.
