This route is one of the reasons you come to Yangshuo to climb. Stellar position, great rock, and super fun moves. Skirting the right side of the arch (from the main climbing face's side), several tricky sections along the route lead to a strenuous crux at the end of a long overhang: several steep pulls to a leftwards move to a juggy rail, and then finally to a couple smaller holds to pull the lip. Exciting and incredibly rewarding, this is clearly a Yangshuo classic!


Located on the right side of the arch, as you look through it back down the approach path. It starts just below several boulders at the base.


All bolts, around 12, to a fixed bolt anchor. Can't easily top rope this route as its too overhanging. Careful at the 3rd bolt; the best place to clip it is from above it.
