beautiful location bolted by Petzl team and CMDI for RocTrip2011, just check out the free topo guide on Petzl's site

Some of the more remote crags are a little bit hard to access, it is sometimes necessary to remove bushes or vegetation to find the right trail.

Moreover, some of the routes have been opened several years ago and quick links on the top anchors have not been changed until now. During my last trip there in Feb. 2016, I noted a few rusty quick links that could use a change. It might be good to bring a few spare ones with you if you have the skills to replace them.

As this site is located around a small village in the countryside of China, no one is able to speak English over there. It is still possible to communicate by translating sentences on your smartphone.

Local hostels owners can arrange pick up at the airport for between 600 to 800CNY. It takes around 2 hours and a half to get there by car.

Accommodation usually costs around 30CNY for the night, on a hard bed and without air conditioner in the room. Local breakfast will cost and extra 5CNY, and dinner should not be more expensive than 20CNY as well.

Getting There 

Take bus on new highway to Ziyun (N25.75247 E106.08495) from either Guiyang. It's now possible to take direct bus from Guiyang bus station to Ziyun in less than 2 hours. It requires one more hour of minivan from Ziyun to center of GetuHe village (N25.67814 E106.25838). Hotel and a few hostels in the village, all routes within 10-60min walking from center of village.

king of guano 5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b PG13  Asia : China : ... : Getu Valley
This is probably the best easy route in the great arch. Super fun. No single move harder than 10a. There are several hand-free rest positions on this route, making the rate only 10a/b in my opinion. If you want to test your endurance, then dont take advantage of these rest points (it would be a 10b/c because of the pump at the end). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
