1. The Great Wall 9 routes in Area

Mostly Sport

The Great Wall is a massive limestone cliff located approximately 45 minutes drive North West of Yangshuo. This impressive cliff is located deep in the countryside, is situated high up on a hill and offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. The crag is north facing and is in the shade all day until late in the afternoon. Climbs on offer include multi and single pitch routes. The crag sees little traffic and there is some loose rock so helmets are recommended. The cliff is relatively remote with a mountain like feel about it, so it’s more suited to competent experienced climbers.
