The biggest sector of Maku-iwa with lots of climbs and few boulder problems just below it.

Access issues inherited from Maku Iwa

As of March 2010 there are some access issues with the left-hand band of cliffs from the parking lot. Climbers are asked to climb only on the right hand side (Wonderland/Ali Baba area) until this has been resolved.


You can walk up from the parking using the obvious path and keep left or follow the road a bit into the valley for a few hundred meters and take a small trail to your right. The cliff can be seen from the road.

Ethic inherited from Japan

There`s not a lot of information about climbing in Japan in English. Much of the information is only available in Japanese - or of course here on theCrag!

The Japan Free Climbing Association ( is a good point of contact and there is a set of 5 guidebooks (all in Japanese) and an alpine guide book in English available covering all of Japan and its thousands of sport and trad routes and boulders.

Next crack to the left of Emily. Short overhang followed by a nice less-than-vertical hands/thin hands crack. Traverse left and deal with the tree or go straight up past the block. There is a bolt/chain anchor with rap rings above the tree. (5.9 in the Hyakuiwaba guidebook, 5.10a in the latest Rock & Snow topo)

エミリー Crack is full of plants and dirt, I don't think it gets much (any) traffic

Thin crack with a short wide section in the middle. Traverse left at the horizontal about a meter below the piton, then follow the corner up past the block and end at a bolt/chain anchor with rap rings up and to the right. (5.9 in the Hyakuiwaba guide book, 5.10a in the latest Rock & Snow topo)


This route no longer has bolts

Far right on the same ledge as No. 3 route, Emily, etc. Short, right-leaning fists to hands crack. Bolt/chain anchor with rap ring on the face once you top out the crack.
