Description

This crag is a very prominent landmark located beside the main road with a 15 meter high painted concrete butterfly on it.

Access issues

All of the routes at this crag are UNCLIMBABLE except for maybe "Father and Son". Any routes located near the butterfly have been destroyed by a large concrete roof type structure. Climbing from this tourist entrance is prohibited. Routes on the backside of the crag had their hangers removed in 2012.

Ethic inherited from Yangshuo

Climbing in China is similar to Korea, whereas the most popular crags can get crowded during the busy seasons. its not uncommon to find ropes hanging on many routes that at the moment are not being used. Or for for certain areas to "feel" overused with lots of people hanging around, with music, and lots of good vibes. Please wear a smile, be patient, make conversation and be polite. If there are any safety issues, speak up...the chinese, and hopefully all climbers, welcome professional instruction.

New routing is acceptable. Please please do not squeeze routes in-between others, nor hap-hazardly add routes. The overall climbing experience of the chinese community is at a novice level. It is very important to develop SAFE routes that are thoroughly cleaned. IF you have a question about adding an additional bolt...DO IT!! Also..It would be wise to find a local guru before developing and ask for some local tips. Thank You.

Route looks pretty good. It easily noticeable from the road with many pockets and such. however it is immensely overgrown with vegetation. Good Luck!
