IF YOU ARE GOING TO DEEP WATER SOLO CHECK THE TIDE INFORMATION OR YOU MAY GO WHEN YOU CAN'T DWS!
You should check that high tide will happen between 10 am and 4 pm and it should be a peaking tide with a wide swing in depth. It can be weeks between times that it is right to DWS in Ha Long Bay so don't think if you were coming for two weeks you'll be ok. It could even be a month. Be safe; talk to SloPony and check the tide charts.
Ha Long Bay is a huge area. I made up the term Moody Tiger Bay to separate this area. Moody Tiger Bay is the space between Moody Beach and Tiger Beach. From a boat in the "Moody Tiger Bay" you can access the roped climbing on Moody Beach and Tiger Beach and the a few deep water soloing areas. Some areas may also require a kayak to access the climbing.
Take a boat out to the area. Easiest to schedule through SloPony.

We were dropped off at the large boulder at the base of Pitch 1A.Pitch 1A (5 bolts) meanders diagonally up and to the right and is extremely chossy and very traverse-y making it equally dangerous for the follower as the leader. Although we were kicking off choss left and right, the bolts looked solid and were in higher quality rock. The book recommends some ca...[more] Browse More Classics in International
