I'll be traveling with the girlfriend in Vietnam for the rest of July and I'd like to get a DWS climbing day at Ha Long Bay. Wondering if there are any climbers in the area that want to go out and show me around a bit? I'm down to climb whatever for the awesome experience and location, but can climb up to 7c+.

Message me from this site; I leave for Vietnam on July 8.

Check in with Asia Outdoors for climbing partners and also to hire a boat. There are many rock formations but to get to some good climbs, its best to go with someone who knows the area. If you can put up with the heat, the valley is amazing to climb. Just bring bug spray and sunscreen. I wont be able to go out there, but if you come to Hanoi, message me and we can go to some local crags. John Martin2

John Martin2: I just returned to the USA after living in Hanoi for 8 months, and never heard about these "local crags"...I'm wondering if I missed out. How close to Hanoi? Ryan Nevius

There's quoc oai which is about 45 minutes west of Hanoi with about 15 routes and then there's huu lung which is about 2.5 hours away with 20-30 routes currently but has the potential to be better than cat ba Valley. John Martin2
