DescriptionChina is a massive and varied country that dominates the Asian landscape. At 9.8 million square kilometers, China has virtually the same land area as the USA.
In the past, the primary attraction for climbers was the high peaks of the Tibetan plateau, including the infamous peak-bagger's dream of Mt Everest. Recently western sport climbers have begun to explore the impressive limestone that China has to offer.
Currently China's top sport climbing destination is YangShuo, home to exquisite white limestone towers similar in quality to the sport crags of Thailand.
For trad climbing, the top destination is Li Ming. Sandstone cracks with infinite character near a village of ethnic minorities in an idyllic valley. Check out Mike Dobie's guidebook, out now!
