DescriptionProbably the most famous climbing spot in Shanghai's area. Lot of people come to climb here, but still it is not too crowded due to the long approach to the crags.
Granit rock, with around a hundred routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.14-. Slab, sloppy, crack, cheminey, crimpy, multi pitches. You can find any type of climbing you like.
Guidebooks can be found on following link (in Chinese):
A more complete version of the guidebook should be released soon.
Accomodation in the village is cheap and includes great breakfast and dinners. Count around 125RMB a day for a two bed's bedroom plus food for two.

Getting ThereLocated near a small hamlet named longshangcun (龙上村), in the countryside north of Linan city.
Best way to get there is to rent a minivan from Shanghai for the weekend, which will cost you around 2000RMB for 10 seats. Another solution is to take the train to Hangzhou or Jiashan, and then book another taxi/minivan to get to the village.
Address of the hamlet in Chinese : 临安市高虹镇龙上村.
To get to the crag, leave the village by the south road and cross the small bridge. Then turn right on the small trail that heads up to the mountain. It's a 30 minutes long hike on a quite slopy trail.
