Xiao Man slumming up a peasant's route


This route starts at the left-most edge of a steep, grassy ledge. There are two ways to approach it. First, from directly below, climb easy blocks and grassy steps, avoiding loose rock and trying not to slip on the grass. Second, climb up Topout.

So you made it! Send the crack directly upwards, making use of features on the face as well as straight-in jamming. Up top the crack dissipates and you will have to stem around some bushes and forgo any decent protection before reaching the anchors.


Start up the left side of the auditorium, and follow a faint trail until you come to an open grassy section. Look up and identify some shiny bolts about 25m high. This is the anchor for Freedom Crack.
