Description 

This area is new for Mountain Project, and is just getting started. Feel free to contribute!

A good wall with steep routes and good holds. If you are looking for some longer single pitches, this may be your place.
The wall does seem to see some traffic, but mostly on the short 6's. The longer and harder routes seemed to be free most of the time.

The destination climb here is most certainly Cross-Eyed (5.12a) but Smoking Room (5.11b) also deserves to be climbed!

Getting There 

Approach by going to the surfer's left, which is to say the left side of Ton Sai if facing the beach from the water. Follow a trail back behind a solitary restaurant to the bright rust-colored Fire Wall. Continue past Fire wall on the cliff-base trail, as if heading out to the point and duck down on the obvious trail through a bit of a tunnel through an arch of rock. You will emerge from this brief tunnel at the base of Melting Wall.

The route Bon Soir (5.11c) is immediately to your right if you turn around and look back towards the cave.

Quality enduro pumpfest through the middle of the steep wall. Highly recommended!Affenhitze begins on the slabby start and vertical tufa shared with Cross Eyed. A long reach from the top of the tufa towards the two big "eyes" starts the difficulties for both routes. Here, Affenhitze heads right while Cross Eyed moves left.Especially if linking the entry slab into the steep wall, make sure to clip the bolt between and just below the two "eyes" with a long sling or rope drag...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
