Pillars has become the most popular crag in LiMing, for good reason. With high quality lines in the range of grades and sizes, there is something for everyone. Even though Pillars is south facing, its aspect provides variable sun and shade depending on the season. Classics include: Morass 10c, Clam Digger 10+, Faraway Corner 11a, Funky Dan 12b and Air China 13c.

Getting There
