Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


approach this area the same way as akibasho Rock but continue another 50m upstream. The climbing is on the second ledge

Ethic inherited from Japan

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but with some clubs and communities, many techniques and ethics are still passed down from old generations with outdated gear and techniques.
