Description 

Prominent tower boasting a number of trad lines: Wedding Day, Diagonal, Hippie Crack, One Way Ticket, etc. Quality rock is highly fractured, accepting as much gear as you're willing to throw at it.
(As always, consult Matt Robertson's "Long Dong Trad Climbs" for detailed area and route descriptions and photos)


Getting There 

10 to 15 minutes south of Ho-mei village. Trend south from School Gate on "scree" field. Clocktower is obvious tower after passing through "Puffer's Pass"
