A segregated section of rock up on a ledge away from the rest of the areas. Probably one of the more notable faces as it's one of the tallest. There's some great single pitch lines here as well as multi-pitch climbs. The climbs stay dry-ish in a moderate sprinkle, but would not be fun in a downpour. Goes into the shade around mid-day.

Getting There 

Go around to the right to the north-face, approach the rock and then head back left. Go through the cave and you'll be at the NE Face.

A great route, and without a doubt the best 'hard' route at The Egg. Some big moves, some steep-ish, alot of tricky, thin stuff, and a tough (but safe) clip in the crux -- all this on great stone.This is a very devious route which epitomizes Yangshuo-style thin and delicate face climbing. The climbing is fun from bottom to top, and though it has a definite crux section, one can still fall off near the top on the home stretch. Don't celebrate until clipping the anchors!The guide book has it at 12...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
