The view of the White Mountain area from The Egg
A bit more secluded than the Wine Bottle Area, the crags at White Mountain either require a personal vehicle/charter, or some hoofing it from the public bus. The area has two major crags, The Egg and White Mountain, and several smaller areas. Most of the areas are a bit difficult to find, but itís worth it for the solitude, not to mention spectacular climbing.
Head south-east out of town, towards Puyi. About 2 miles after crossing the Yu Long River you should see a small community off to the right. The first dirt road goes to The Egg, the second to White Mountain and the surrounding crags.
A public bus heads this way but Iím not sure which one (Puyi?). On the public bus youíll have to get let off at the dirt road and youíll have a 1-2 km hike ahead of you. A charter bus can take you right up to the crags. I recommend getting the name of a charter company from a guide shop as they will be familiar with the area. You could also feasibly bike there, but itís probably about 10 km.

The best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses)....[more] Browse More Classics in International
