Eye Cave (Yan Jing Dong) Rock Climbing
In Eye Cave proper, Liu Xinan on Swallow's Flight.
Eye Cave lies above the road near the river crossing to the Weeping Wall. It is the only crag on the west side of the river.
Ascend the old caravan trail that starts next to the cascading stream emanating from the cliff base. After about 100 steep meters, a faint trail takes off (starting with an easy rock move across a slab) and angles back up to the cave. Fly Me to the Moon starts on the main caravan trail, a short distance up from the access trail to the cave. See Eye Cave BETA PHOTOS for access and route locations.

This five-pitch route ascends the buttress immediately right (downstream) of Eye Cave. It is a route to climb, not rappel, so bring walking shoes and scramble over the ridge above the top anchor to trail. DESCENT: Follow the small trail on the ridge east to the pavilion on the top of the mountain, then down through the forest to the River Cave and around the slope on old trail back to base of climb. See Eye Cave BETA PHOTO for access and route location. NOTE: Pitches 4 and 5 can be combined, but...[more] Browse More Classics in International
