Vietnam is a land of mountains, just go out of cities, u will see mountains or rocks, it becomes higher and higher, bigger and bigger, from the North to the South, everywhere, from giant mountain ranges in Hà Giang, Lào Cai far from North point, as Fansipan summit, the roof of Indochina peninsula then historical Trường Sơn ranges in the middle of our country, to many bouldering block areas along 1800km paradise coast. And many many more tropical mountain landscapes that we can come, discover and climb there. After more than 10 years developing and discovering, almost by local foreigners, thanks to them, we have some climbing areas cross our country. We have such a beautiful island gem, Cát Bà island surrounding by 1 of 7 natural wonders in the world, Hạ Long Bay with unlimited deep water solo. More to the North, we have incredible series of valleys with very high quality of limestone, the number of crags can be bolted here seems to be like endless and many hidden areas are still waiting for finding and touching by who love it. This is Hữu Lũng, climbing here is great, it's only more than 10 crags up to now, comparing with other areas in the world, it's not so big, but 10 crags, 10 different characters, tufa style, overhang knee bar style, vertical finger pocket and slab crimp technique style. Hữu Lũng is taken care by some local climbers and developers who really love it so much, they always watch out the quality of the bolts by years and maintain it, always think about put the grade for all the routes correctly as much as possible, and still aim to develop more harder routes for the community every years. And remember, Hữu Lũng is just 1 of hundreds or thousands areas can be developed for climbing in Vietnam. We just hope by the time, people in Vietnam will realize how the nature beautiful is when we really connect with it by all our mental and physically, because the rock in Vietnam is deserved and people in Vietnam are deserved to be one and show how we are to the world by climbing.
