One of the premier crags of Yangshuo, perhaps second only to White Mountain. Though Lei Pi has fewer routes, it boasts some of the best hard routes on some of the best stone, and in fact has relatively few moderates to warm up on. The uber-classic (and long) 14's Lightning and Thunder are found here, as well as a slew of top-quality 12s and 13s. Many folks head to Lei Pi to test their mettle on the hard test pieces they've heard about: Singularity, Thunder, Single Life to name a few.
This is one of the furthest cliffs from Yangshuo, about 10km south of the town near the village of Gao Tian.

From there, either keep walking the last km or so to the crag or catch one of the readily available moto-taxis for an additional 5 yuan or so.
