Ground zero of the climbing scene in YangShuo. The area is close to town, accessible by public transport or bike, and has several walls of various facing direction that are all close to the road. What more can you ask for in sport climbing? Yes, thereís food, beverage and restrooms as well (at Butterfly Springs).
Itís a short bike ride to the Wine Bottle area, but you may want to take the bus the first time if you donít know how to get there.
The Wine Bottle Area is the first tourist stop on the bus, so expect hordes of tourists; if youíve never seen Chinese tourism, expect to be amazed. Many of the walls are not more than a few feet off the road so itís common to look down and see a hundred lenses and fingers pointing at you.

Donít be surprised to see lines of cars backed-up because crowds stop in the middle of the street to take pictures of people climbing.
