Description

My group scouted the base of this route. While it does have an incredible location on a prominent arête of the cliffs, the route quality did not look all that great. The approach was also a massive pain. The lower pitches look ledge-y, with all the moderate lines sporting plantlife, though there are much cleaner, harder lines on the walls around the arête. Since this area is so infrequently accessed, significant bushwhacking is involved to get to the base of the arête.

Location

Some bushwhacking required. You will need to find the first trail off of the switchbacks below Guoliang Tunnel. Once beneath the arete, you will need to find a faint climbers/animal trail and bushwhack a bit to the base.
