Low Mountain Rock Climbing
Riding into the village from the main road.
A large tower of limestone with the climbing on the south face. Many of the single pitch routes may stay dry.
Rent a bike for 5 or 10 Yuan a day. The bike ride is about 6 miles and will take 40-60 minutes. If you take the Moonhill mini-bus it will be a 1 km to 4 km walk from the main road depending on where you are going.
From the Yangshuo bus station right East toward West Street. The road will turn south and you will pass a 3 way intersection which could be a round about but does not function as such so bare right with the flow of all the traffic. This will lead you to a major round about with a sign to Guilin to the right go around the around-about to continue straight toward Gaotian. This will place you on the road to the wine bottle. Bike past the giant concrete butterfly accross from the Wine Bottle and continue to the Yulong River. Go over the bridge at the Yulong River and take the almost immediate second left on a paved road. This road leds you into the village. See the specific area for future directions.
Biking or walking up the the village from the main road you will turn left, then right, then left, then right, this will lead you to a T intersection of sort going right would feel like back tracking and will naturally want to go left so go left. The road will turn to dirt shortly. You will see Low Mountain ahead to your left and Space Buttress Area to your right. Head "past" Low Mountain straight for Space Buttress. Go over a culvert and then turn left. Very quickly you will be at an intersection and go straight. The road with bank right to some houses and a road heading left will appear. Take the left turn onto this road and immediately take the footpath to the left. This will bring you to the base.
