White Mountain


White Mountain is an impressive crag dominated by harder grade climbs. The massive wall is overhung and the climbing is both physical and sustained. The crag is South facing and is in the sun all day, however during summer some areas are in shade. The crag stays mostly dry during rain.


From the large tree at Deng Long Shan Village veer right onto a smaller road and follow it for 0.5km to where a "Y" intersection with a narrow blue sign is reached. Turn left and follow this road for 1KM into Zhou Sang Village. Where the concrete ends, a dirt track turns right over a small creek. Continue for 0.5km eventually passing Wall of the Damned on your left and crossing over a larger second creek. Go Straight at a small intersection, then shortly afterwards the track bends to the left and narrows. Turn Right onto the first trail that goes up a low rising hill. Follow the trail for 0.2km. White mountain will be on the right.

FA: Paul Collis, Chen Xie Wei & Liu Tao, 2004

The 2nd pitch involves nice face climbing on reasonable holds. As at April 2012, the belay at the top of pitch 1 has been removed, and the route is now climbed as a long single pitch.
