Summary

Biggest walls in Taiwan in Taroko Gorge, but it's all marble so slippery and rock quality is variable. Some great bouldering on the sea-cliffs.

Description

The area north of Hualien City around Taroko Gorge has innumerable huge marble cliffs. The bouldering area is the cliff base in the beach that runs North from Chongde. This area us some really fun bouldering and the beach is very coarse sand making for soft landings - no mats required. Rock can be salty, so bring lots of chalk. Nothing to do a trip for but if you are checking out Taroko Gorge it's well worth the detour. Go late afternoon to avoid the heat in summer. Great potential for trad routes if you have the gear.

Access issues

Access is via the Chungte recreational area. Walk down the stairs past the toilets to the beach (track is currently closed but is still passable). Once at the beach go left (North) for about 10 minutes to the base of the cliff where it meets the sea.

Approach

It's about 30minutes north of Hualien, and a 10 minute walk.

History

History timeline chart

It appears unclimbed, though there was some bolting activity at the next beach North at the south end of Heren beach, though the climbing here is not as good.

Up and left from the cave over the top

Great little overhung Boulder problem

Up onto the knob and out onto the overhang.

Up the off-width crack to the tip of the overhang.

Start on the left of the face, and traverse right with feet following the obvious crack line to the arête.

Runs left up to the right of the flat face l to the arête and finishes topping out over the face.

Fun knobby overhang.

Boulder route that traverses up and right with dynamic moves to a flake.
