Description 

Climbing was established sometime in the early 90's by climbers unknown on limestone cliffs near the tourist attraction of Sail Rock. The last published information is on Ron's Climbing Page. The website was abandoned in 2009, and the information is even more out-of-date, but it is still interesting nonetheless.

Current consideration for development focuses not on the limestone, which is very much like that in Shoushan but of lesser size and quality, but instead on the conglomerate peaks that command the skyline. There is a single established line up the north face of Da Jian Shan with potential for dozens if not hundreds more...

Watch this video to get an idea for how awesome the potential is...

Getting There 

If taking public transportation from anywhere on the west coast, the fastest way would be to take HSR to Zuoying station in Kaohsiung (end of the line), get off, walk out of the station, and immediately catch a bus to Kenting. This should take 1.5-2 hours. Get off at Nanwan or Xiaowan, depending on what your plans are (where you're staying, how you're getting around). Check the area pages for information on how to get to each crag.

As far as I'm aware, there has not yet been a second ascent...Climb up the pebbly, pockety face just left of a slight water runnel. At the crux just before the slab, you can cheat right a bit. Take a breath and keep it together for the easier, but more spaced-out protection of the slab. Trend slightly left to belay at a small ledge.Step right into the big pockets and jugs. The face gradually gets more vertical as it comes up to and crosses a diagonal crack. Launch into the slight overhang - ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
