Description

Massive cliff folding out like a karst origami located in a secluded valley. Right section's routes mostly follow multiple tufas heading up to the top. Central section is made of diversified routes following the weak lines of the cliff. Left section proposes uncommon climbing in the area, ie very fingery and bouldery climbing on a vertical and blank wall.

Access issues inherited from Hữu Lũng

Cliffs are located in private orchards or lands. Be careful of crops. All access conditions are centralized and monitored by VietClimb, the local climbing club of Hanoi.

Approach

From the village main road, turn South (North is going to Mao's homestay) in direction of WoofStuck and Passe-Muraille. At the intersection bringing you to Duc's bungalows, go West to cross a little hamlet and then rice field (500 meters). Climb up a hill (5 minutes) to arrive in a secondary valley hosting goats, mandarin trees and lumberjacks.

Ethic inherited from Hữu Lũng

All local access with orchards' owners, Commune and District authorities arranged by VietClimb. Every climber is required to stay at Mao's homestay, a local family, and contact VietClimb to book their stay, signal their presence, inquire about the latest updates and get a briefing.
