This is Bai He's most popular area, and the only place you are likely to see large Chinese guided groups. It has a great selection of climbs from 5.7 to 5.12 and a great beach like area to chill on while not climbing.

The river can get thigh deep and has a strong current so be careful when crossing (although you should be careful crossing any river).

Getting There 

Lao Yan chang is 250m past Warm Up Wall. Keep going past Warm Up Wall until you see another turn out with red spray paint on the rocks. It is very evident that this small section of the road was blasted through the rock; do not pass this section. Step over the guard rail and make your way down to the river (it is stepp, but there is a path, though it may be hard to see) at the river go to your left to the main area, cross the river to the second area.
