DescriptionThe Lisu Area is, by far, most concentrated and popular crag in Li Ming, including the comfortable Pillars area, multipitch crag Primitive Buttress and the smaller but stacked Pinecrest Buttress. The Painted Wall is also grouped in the Lisu Area, but is accessed by going right from the stairs.
The Lisu Area is a great first-day climbing in Li Ming, with high quality routes from 5.8 to 5.13 of all crack sizes imaginable from the thin and technical to the wide and burly. The Lisu Area offers good options for chasing sun or shade depending on weather, making conditions comfortable throughout the whole Li Ming climbing season. There is enough here to keep most climbers busy for a month, without ever visiting the other crags.
Getting ThereCasual 30 minute walk from Liming village. Head southwest, away from park entrance, for a little over a kilometer. Turn east, at the "Anqini Scenic Lookout 安七尼" sign, down towards the river, across a stone bridge and up the giant fake-wood staircase that leads to a cave and via-ferrata. At the obvious split boulder, there is a new sign pointing left towards Pillars, Primitive and Pinecrest areas. For the shadier Painted Wall, turn right at split boulder and take the faint trail up a large, obvious switchback over the conglomerate layer.
