All weather cave with steep hard climbs


Xiaomoyu village is now the home to much of Kunming’s crags. The “Xiaomoyu Cave” is the most well-known of the crags and remains the highlight of any trip to Kunming, a beautiful natural feature with a full grade range of steep climbing, mostly hard climbing though. There are a few other crags though that are worth visiting. First, this is more like an extension of the Cave, there are a bunch of top quality climbs in the cornfield down and right of the Cave, this crag should be visible from the village as you approach the climbing area. Secondly, there is the TNT Wall, this is one of my favorite crags in Kunming, great lines ranging between 6a and 7c+, with a number of good climbs around 7a, a mixture of face climbing and fun roof climbing. Belayers please be aware of not standing under your climber at this crag, we’ve tried to clear the loose stuff, but not worth taking chances. A pleasant walk of about 25-30 minutes, through the forested mountain side acts a good warm up for the climbing. The last two walls are alongside each other, The Pregnancy Wall and the Honey Wall, bolted a few years ago, but remained relatively unknown (hence this website), some shorter climbing, ranging between 6a and 7c, with a couple of open projects (7c and beyond).
