(1e) AC Wall

International > Asia > Taiwan > Kaohsiung > Shoushan Nature Park

Description

This is the tallest and most impressive area developed so far. The super-classic Kaohsiung 101 tops out at over 30 meters! There are currently around eight routes, with potential for many more. The lower section of the main wall only dries out in winter, and the whole wall has a somewhat dusty characteristic about it, but this does not diminish the quality of the climbs too much. The easiest routes start at 10+, so be comfortable with pulling hard if you want to climb many routes here.

Getting There

From the entrance of Skyline, turn right and walk downhill. Continue straight and turn right onto the first trail - walk up the cleft in the boulders to a huge bamboo plant. Stay right and you will eventually come to the huge amphitheater. Descend to the base to access the routes.
