Weeping Wall is the large face that looms over the downstream end of a meadow upstream from the dam. The climbs all start from a large ledge that can be gained via a short scramble from the right side. The three climbs on the right side of the face are perfect, overhanging tufa climbs a la Krabi, Thailand. See Weeping Wall BETA PHOTO for route locations.
GETTING TO WEEPING WALL, SHADOW WALL, AND JUST GO WALL
These crags are located on the east side of the river, 100-150 m above the diversion dam. You cannot access this face by crossing the dam, however, without wading. See Fumin Canyon BETA PHOTOS.
Low-water Access - When the river is low during the fall-winter-spring dry season, you can cross the river on rocks 0.5 km above the dam. The crossing is just above a huge boulder lying in the river next to the road. Once on the other side, follow a path downstream in an old canal bed to a meadow.
High-water access - During the summer monsoons the Tang Lang River rages through the canyon, making it necessary to cross on the bridge to Xin Min Village (Xin Min Cun), about 1 km above the dam. Head back downstream on a small, wandering trail that bushwhacks across a steep hillside. Eventually, you meet up with the path mentioned above.
Route 1 on BETA PHOTO. 2 bolts and 9 threads, arching right then back left to treaded anchors. 27 m. BE AWARE: Lowering off these anchors leaves you hanging beyond the edge of the ledge – be sure to have a long stick to pull the climber back onto the ledge....[more]Browse More Classics in International
