White Mountain Area Rock Climbing
The view of the White Mountain area from The Egg
A bit more secluded than the Wine Bottle Area, the crags at White Mountain either require a personal vehicle/charter, or some hoofing it from the public bus. The area has two major crags, The Egg and White Mountain, and several smaller areas. Most of the areas are a bit difficult to find, but its worth it for the solitude, not to mention spectacular climbing.
Head south-east out of town, towards Puyi. About 2 miles after crossing the Yu Long River you should see a small community off to the right. The first dirt road goes to The Egg, the second to White Mountain and the surrounding crags.
A public bus heads this way but Im not sure which one (Puyi?). On the public bus youll have to get let off at the dirt road and youll have a 1-2 km hike ahead of you. A charter bus can take you right up to the crags. I recommend getting the name of a charter company from a guide shop as they will be familiar with the area. You could also feasibly bike there, but its probably about 10 km.

: ... : White Mountain Cliff
The best route of its grade at the crag? Yangshuo? Certainly a contender, White Devil boasts great, super-fun climbing from bottom to top. Ramps up to speed early with a tough, delicate crux near the bottom, climbs to a tricky few moves at mid-way, then a pumpy ride to a super satisfying (and a bit sharp) thank-god jug. The finish is a fun final 10m of 11b-ish jug hauling -- hard enough to fall off of and spoil a redpoint or onsight if you haven't saved quite enough....[more] Browse More Classics in International
