"One-star climbs in a four-star location."
A small cliff of basalt set above the Xinbeitou area of New Taipei City. There is very little information out there about this site, in either English or Chinese. In contrast to Big Cannon Cliff, however, it does have bolts for leading. It has a more strenuous approach, but for those who wish to lead climb outdoors in the Taipei area, this is pretty much the only option. It is primarily a sport climbing area, although there are some continuous cracks in which you could plug some gear. Please help flesh out this page by providing any information you might know in the comments section.
From Xinbeitou MRT, drive or walk to the corner of Guangming Rd and Zhongshan Road. There is a 7-11 here. Continue up Zhongshan Road, keeping right at the public hot spring, until Guangming Rd merges into it, then turn right onto this road. Wenquan Rd will then merge into this road, and follow it left. Stay right, going down a narrow road behind a building, and then just keep the hills above on your right as the road ascends into the forest. At a sharp switchback, locate a fisheye mirror near a set of stone steps which will lead you up towards the cliff. It's about a 30 minute walk from the MRT to the cliff.
