Continue for 20m and cross another stream. Hike right with the stream on your right (don’t hike up to the top). Follow the trail along the stream for fifteen minutes and keep an eye out for a rock with a few Chinese characters written on it and a temple mark 卍 in blue by the trail on your left . About 100m past this rock, look for a path on your left . Hike up the trail for a few minutes to reach the crag. From the parking lot, it will take twenty- five minutes to get to the crag.
