Where to stay
Stay at Climber's Garden for camping and at The Land for individual bungalows. Both offer restaurant service as well as DIY.
There are no restrictions aside from respecting the environment as the local government has been very tolerant and we don't want that to change. All bolting is stainless steel and not more than 10 years old. Between 20 to 30 new routes are opened every year and visitors are welcome to contribute to that with local advice.
