Description

While this climb is easy, you still feel as if you’re in the midst of an adventure with the subtropical jungle surrounding you. As you break through the vegetation, you get the best view of the YuLong river. Enjoy it all the way to the top.

This climb requires a 70m rope to descend. There is a lot of sharp rock, so be cautious! The climbing itself is nothing spectacular, but it’s absolutely worth it to take a trip to the top of Low Mountain.

P1 (5.8, 80 feet) - Mantle your way up a series of sharp ledges. Guidebook claims 10 bolts, but there may only be 9. Skip the first belay station you come to and end on another about 15 feet higher.
P2 (5.7, 100 feet) - the guidebook calls this a 5.7, but it’s really more of an aggressive hike. There are only 4 bolts on this pitch, but you don’t even notice. End at the base of the next pitch on a two bolt anchor.
P3 (5.7, 65 feet) - another pitch that’s a mix of easy climbing and some scrambling. 6 bolts? End on another ledge.
P4 (5.7, 70 feet) - this pitch feels true to the 5.7 grade. Climb on sharp jugs to a semi-hanging belay on a small ledge.
P5 (5.8, 65 feet) - the most exciting and exposed pitch on the climb, although only for a few moves. Skip the first anchor you come to and top out about 25-30 feet higher. There is another anchor up there.

Descent:
From the top out, rap down 30 feet to that first anchor you passed on the last pitch. Watch for sharp edges.
Rap again to a hanging rap station. Be prepared to get VERY close to your partner as you prep for the next rap.
Rap down to a ledge behind an old wall. To your left (as you face the wall) is a cave through the mountain. Walk through.
Rap once more from a guide station at the end of the cave. There is a wooden platform, but it’s stability is questionable. 

Location

This climb is located on the Western Arete of Low Mountain. Instead of following the trail as it ends at the main wall, continue around the mountain on a faint path through thick grass. This path ends at the base of the climb.

Protection

10-12 bolts
