BETA PHOTO: The North Face of The Egg


A fantastic clean face with some long routes, some steep routes, and a couple technical ones. Has about a dozen climbs on it and arguably the best face on The Egg. The routes between Rooster Booster and Hustler's Roof stay dry in the rain. The wall goes into the shade around noon.

Getting There 

Go around right from the east face until you see a huge cave. There should be a small trail winding up the hill to the large belay area below. This also serves as the access for the North-East Face.

Rooster Booster 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Asia : China : ... : North Face
The best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
