Are there any outdoor climbing areas in China near Shanghai, or Hong Kong, or the Zhangjiajie area?
Looking for anything outside using a rope. Sport/Trad/top rope.

Hong Kong is full of great climbing, 90% accessible by public transportation. Check out hong Kong Climbing.

Yahoo Group has a Shanghai climbing group that is very active. Some new crag and whole new areas have recently been discovered and developed.

Guangzhou has a nice but small crag on Bayun Mountain. (Behind the tennis courts)About 20 routes from 5.8 to 5.12

An hour and a half from Guangzhou is 9 Dragons. I'll give you better directions in the near future.

There is a handful of climbing but it's logistically difficult. If you are in Shanghai give me a call or text message and I will hook you up. Otherwise send me an e-mail. 18616129387
