Scarface II, with its distinct sickle-shaped and/o...


Sweet hands roof out of a wide slot to a perfect less-than-vertical right-leaning hands splitter.

Best to link into the roof above that is Gore now that a new anchor has been added there allowing for an easy lower to the ground (knot the rope it's a full 30 meters).


Double .75 to #3, #4 and optional #5.

An über route from start to finish! There's good reason why this route graces the cover of newest edition of the Liming guidebook!

A handcrack roof right off the deck (don't get spooked, the jams are awesome) will deposit you beneath the amazing sickle-shaped crack. Pull through the widest portion, and the crack will cut back towards a small overhang, angling right towards the top of Boy with a Coin. Continue on the secure jams (smaller folks may find it more rattly) to the anchor shared with Boy with a Coin. This can be a classic first pitch to Gore, which together make for a great outing to get to the top of Pinecrest Buttress.

This was my favorite 5.10 of our month-long trip. The #5 was mandatory for me, but didn't need anything smaller than #1. Another anchor setup that will twist the shit out of your rope too.

Definitely one of my favorite pitch during my stay in LiMing.

I did not place anything smaller than a #1
