Description

Fumin Canyon has a lot to offer, great venue for families, climbers of all grades and plenty spots to go camping. The area has developed a lot in recent years, the guidebooks are a little outdated, but most climbs names and grades are written on the rock. Be sure to visit Old Red Rock, some of the best climbing around in the intermediate grade range, mostly face climbs. Eye-cave is where the hard stuff is, bring on the body tension and strong fingers for this area! Another crag in the Fumin area is The Gash, a new wall that is being developed, so far we have put in about 12 climbs, but there is room for close to 100, this is going to be a great climbing area when we are done, easy access, comfortable camping at the crag, climbs of all grades, lengths (up to 40m) and styles (except roof climbing) and beautiful views of the surrounding hills. Finally we get to Swallow Cave, found in the hills somewhere in between Fumin and Xiaomoyu. It is a mission to get to, but definitely worth the effort, you would probably need a to get a lift with one of the local climbers get out there. A deep cave emerging form a beautiful pine forest, this crag is going to be the home of hard climbing for Kunming. About 8 climbs have been bolted, more going up as you read this. The hard climbs are really long and really steep, starting deep in the bowels of the earth and heading for the light and the trees. A good choice of easier climbs makes this crag accessible for all. There is bouldering here as well, mostly waiting to be explored, so far we have just been too excited to bolt the sport lines.
