Summary

This crag is a very common destination for companies doing "team building", and they will usually be from morning until 13:30 on the right side of the Cheese side (easier routes).

Description

Swiss Cheese Wall is nice little crag that as of mid 2011 comprises two sectors offering single pitch climbs over a wide grade range. Bamboo stands located at the base of the crag offer all day shade for belaying and relaxing in a pleasant atmosphere. The original Right Hand Wall has climbs in the lower to intermediate grades and is riddled with holes and scars and is aptly named Swiss Cheese because of its distinctive appearance. The recently developed Left Hand Wall provides more difficult, thin, fingery climbs on a vertical wall. The crag is however very popular with the climbing schools and can at times resemble West Street.

Access issues inherited from 阳朔 Yangshuo

Be aware: about 60% of the climbing occurs in a "scenic tourist park". As long as you travel by motorbike or bicycle the 100rmb entrance fee is not required. You will learn about this in the first few days in Yangshuo. It doesn't really concern climbers, but is pertinent info...especially when considering a taxi during inclement weather.

All of the land belongs to the Chinese government and has been appropriated to respective farming villages. Each crag and it's access is then controlled by either the village collectively or a specific person, so technically we as climbers are trespassing 95% of the time in China. However, most villagers welcome climbing and do not present any problems. On the contrary, certain crags have historically had issues. If there is signage at any crag asking for small donations (1-5rmb for vehicle parking), please be willing to pay. This money goes directly to the local villager whose land we are using and supports the local associations' agreement with the villagers. The money is minimal and the result has been very beneficial to resolving any issues. Thank You.

Approach

  • 百度地图定位
  • 怎么去
  • The approach through scooter (electric or gasoline) will be from a right turn from the main road, following a concrete road for approximately 5 minutes. When the road becomes narrower, inside what seems to be a village, look for a rectangular concrete slab which resembles a parking lot. The walk will be quite short (3 minutes)

Ethic

Belaying with the noise from the team building will be difficult, specially on longer routes (e.g. Mouse trap). Avoid friction.
