Emission Conrtol 5.9 moon hill yangshuo


I list this for those trying to find an easier warm up pitch than 5.10b. A steep and polished approach pitch. It would be bold for a 5.9 leader. Route moves oddly left around the 6 bolt and then back right.


On the left side of the wall going up to anchors just left of an L shaped hole. This is the approach pitch for the classic 7b+ second pitch.


9 bolts + 4 anchor bolts. We used the two anchor bolts on the left to lower off. The two on the right are looking old and rusted.
