Reaching for that crux sloper...


One of the must do's at the grade in Yangshuo and of course White Mountain, China White climbs the obvious line of large pockets and ledges up the left side of the face you first approach when arriving at the crag.

Some technical climbing, but mostly this is an enduro fest. Many (most?) do at least one dyno, though it can be climbing completely statically -- even if short (I've been witness to this!) -- though that may make it a bit harder. The crux is near the top, so save some gas for the end.

Fun and satisfying climbing ... get on it.


Just left of the uber-classic test piece Gin and Tonic, this climbs up to the large hueco/cave on the left of the main White Mountain face. Its the right most of three routes that share this start, along with The Big Sun and One In The Pink. Climbing out of the cave, head straight up, and take the right-most line of bolts.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor.
