A hidden crag that's tucked away in a quiet lagoon. This crag is fairly new so expect some choss and watch out for loose rock! Trash also washes up in this area so watch out for broken glass. Climbing is possible during light rain however the crag does flood when the tide is above 2.3 meters, making it inaccessible. This crag is not climbed often so swing by the Asia Outdoors office in Cat Ba Town for information about the quality of the bolts and tidal information.

Getting There 

45 minutes from Cat Ba Town via basket boat. From Bova's floating restaurant, 10 minutes via kayak.

Basket Boat approach: If you are looking at Bova's so that it's north of you, head left past the first small channel and into the larger channel. As you're facing that larger channel, take a right and follow that wall all the way until you can take another right. Head to the middle of the lagoon and then to the right.

Kayak Approach: If you are looking at Bova's so that it's north of you, head to the first channel on your left. Follow that all the way down until to reach the small opening. Take a right and magic, you're at Amphitheatre.
