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. The easiest way to get there is to take one of the public buses to Gao Tian (should be 2.5 to 3 yuan/person) all the way past Moon Hill to where the bus makes its final stop in the village. 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.

'Lightning' seems to be the best entry level hard route in Yangshuo. Its best to tick this beauty off before embarking on some of the more serious projects at White Mountain. Originally Yangshuo's first 14a, the route has since been downrated to an honest 13d.The first half of the climb is a route known as Single life (13b), which is a worthy venture in its own right. Getting to the first set of anchors features bold moves between crimps and tufa pinches. A knee bar or two in this lower sect...[more] Browse More Classics in International
