During weekdays a private transportation can be arranged. Check the "approach" section for details.

Approach:

A ferry runs to Tung Lung Chau from Sai Wan Ho typhoon shelter (exit A1 from Sai Wan Ho MTR Station and walk rightwards to the coastline) on weekends and most Public Holidays.

A ferry also runs from the pier at Sam Ka Tsuen, Lei Yue Mun (approach by taxi from Lam Tin MTR Station).

Weekday access: Sampans (for up to 4 people) can usually be rented from the typhoon shelter at Sai Wan Ho by just showing up and haggling with the boat operator. A speed boat (with capacity for 10 people) can be arranged by calling Mr Cheng at: 9080 3754.

Upon arrival at the island follow the obvious concrete path, signposted towards Tung Lung Fort. The large boulder located atop a small hillock is Kite Rock and contains half a dozen short bolted routes. Continue along the path, past the Holiday Store (which provides free topo’s, strong coffee and excellent dumplings), to a camping ground. From here you may make your way to the different climbing areas/crags.

Summary:
All Boulder

Long/Lat: 76.456279, 15.347562

Unique Features And Strengths:

Endless granite boulders set within a beautiful landscape

Description:

Hampi is located in northern Karnataka is a World Heritage and is home to the most beautiful and evocative ruins in Karnataka. The town and bouldering is located within the ruins of the Vijayanagar kingdom and as such has a number of popular ruins which draw in travellers from around the world. In terms of climbing; granite boulders as far as the eyes can see.

The landscape is spread over about 300 square kilometers, with large and small granite boulders scattered in every direction. The abundance of rock and the cheap and easy going lifestyle has made Hampi the mecca for climbing in India.

Currently there are two guidebooks available for the area. One being "Climbing guide book of Hampi and Badami" written by Rohit Chauhan and published in 2008, it contains 250 described problems as well as 60 routes of nearby Badami. This book is now slightly outdated but has enough to get you started. The other more recent book being "Golden Boulders" written by Gerald Krug & Christiane Hupe and published in November 2013. This is the most up-to-date book with over 1000 problems and includes areas outside of the Hampi Island.

The climbing season runs from September till April, with May thru August getting far more rain which can make getting across the river a slight issue. However, the rock dries very fast so its still possible to climb outside this time. The peak season starts around mid october and ends around the end of January, during this time prices are a bit higher (but still super cheap) and there are alot more climbers and tourists in the area.

The potential for bouldering in Hampi is endless, with many square kilometers of boulders still to be explored and developed.

Access Issues:

At present all areas on Hampi Island and on the North side of the river have no access issues. There may be some issues climbing in some of the areas on the south side of the river around Hampi Bazaar. It'd be best to check with local climbers or read up about it before bouldering on the south side.

Ethic:

There`s not a lot of information about in English on climbing in Japan. Much of the information is kept in personal blogs or is accessed through joining a climbing organization.

Many of the routes are well protected, while other less climbed "sport" routes have loose pitons as protection.

The Japan Free Climbing Association does a lot of good work (http://freeclimb.jp/seibi/seibi.htm) but with some clubs and communities, many techniques and ethics are still passed down from old generations with outdated gear and techniques.

The locals tend to sandbag their ratings a little. Each group tends to have its own favorite spot; they have the routes wired pretty tight, so they can think a route is easier than it really is.

Unique Features And Strengths:

Sandstone trad and sport in a stunning seaside location.

Description:

The premier climbing destination in Taiwan. Unique, bullet hard sandstone overlooking reefs, ponds, and the Pacific ocean. Cracks, faces, roofs, and even a few highball/solos over the water. Easy public transportation access from Taipei and Keelung.

Approach:

Buses run from the Taipei and Keelung main stations. Board one bound for Luodong and get off at Homei Elementary School stop on Highway 2 for quick access to the Schoolgate crag or stay on through the tunnel and disembark at the temple just after the tunnel ends. Easy scrambling across boulders will get you to most areas, although there are a few unroped class 4 traversing required to reach a few areas.

Where To Stay:

Camping is technically illegal, but tolerated if you keep a low key. Camp on the rocks or in the grassy areas along the hiking trail above the cliffline.

Ethic:

None to speak of. Some locals stick to a clean ethic, while others go nuts with the power drills. Expect tightly bolted routes (often every 5 feet!), even along lines with plentiful protection.

History:

Mostly undeveloped until the late 80's and early 1990's, although the area has long been popular with fishermen and bird nest collectors. The first wave of developments were done by locals, French, and Koreans. Later development has primarily been done by Taiwanese, although a number of notable FAs have fallen to visitors including Alex Honnold.

1.24.4. Hualien 9 routes in Crag

Summary:
All Boulder
Unique Features And Strengths:

Biggest walls in Taiwan in Taroko Gorge, but it's all marble so slippery and rock quality is variable. Some great bouldering on the sea-cliffs.

Description:

The area north of Hualien City around Taroko Gorge has innumerable huge marble cliffs. The bouldering area is the cliff base in the beach that runs North from Chongde. This area us some really fun bouldering and the beach is very coarse sand making for soft landings - no mats required. Rock can be salty, so bring lots of chalk. Nothing to do a trip for but if you are checking out Taroko Gorge it's well worth the detour. Go late afternoon to avoid the heat in summer. Great potential for trad routes if you have the gear.

Access Issues:

Access is via the Chungte recreational area. Walk down the stairs past the toilets to the beach (track is currently closed but is still passable). Once at the beach go left (North) for about 10 minutes to the base of the cliff where it meets the sea.

Approach:

It's about 30minutes north of Hualien, and a 10 minute walk.

History:

It appears unclimbed, though there was some bolting activity at the next beach North at the south end of Heren beach, though the climbing here is not as good.
