The hot spot for hot shots at YangShuo, White Mountain Cliff is a massive wall leaning past vertical for most its 200 meter length. White Mountain is probably home to the biggest collection of climbs in the upper grades (.12 - .14). The wall is south facing and so gets sun all day long; while it may be a blessing in the cooler months it mostly is a nuisance in the commonly sticky weather of S.E. China. The steepness of the cliff helps it stay fairly dry in the rain. The cliff is getting massively popular and is a good place to pick up a partner if you're up to snuff.
There have been some access issues here back in 2009-2010, I'm not sure if they persist. The cliff is located on farm land and the local farmers would like to make some money off all the increased traffic. Similar issues in the Wine Bottle area have been kept (tenuously) in-check by purchasing drinks and food from the vendors that setup outside the cliffs, but I don't know if something similar has been established here yet. Implementation of a fee for climbing could be around the corner.

A fantastic sport route, solid at the grade. Continuous open handed slopes, big moves, interesting sequences, a few crimps, and even a long dyno -- all on great stone -- make this a classic. The trickiest business is over after the first half, but the rest is no gimme, and you've got to buck-up for the big throw. The final moves may give you pause as well... I saw one RP attempt end on the *final* move before the anchors. There are a couple key rests to help pull-it together. Great, inspiring .....[more] Browse More Classics in International
