Description 

For those who aren't inclined to go to Long Dong, who like short approaches, and don't mind their routes short and slabby...

Dapaoyan (大砲岩), translated as "Big Cannon Cliff", is a high-ball boulder and/or top-rope area in Yangmingshan National Park, just above Beitou. Don't mind the "forbidden to climb" signs... all bark and no bite, kinda like the dog kennels across the road. A 45-minute walk from the MRT, or a short bus ride (runs every 30 min) with some walking, or a very short walk up the hill if you have your own transportation (parking is sparse).

Rehai (熱海) is a slightly larger, taller cliff also in the Beitou area, but outside the national park. There are around 20 bolted routes here, and some can be setup for top-roping from above. Great views of the surrounding forest and outskirts of the city. Can be walked from the MRT in 30 minutes, or in 5 minutes from the trail entrance if you have your own transportation.

Cuishan (翠山) is a fun hike, but climbing-wise is a monumental disappointment.

Getting There 

Check the individual areas.

Gyms, etc. 

There are a plethora of gyms, both indoor and outdoor. Personal recommendations are Stone for bouldering, Neihu for lead climbing, and Da Vinci for top-roping.

First Wall 3 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Asia : Taiwan : ... : Rehai
Starts off with decent but slightly far holds. Ledges interrupt climbing on sketchy-feeling feet. The crux of the climb is 2/3 of the way up with a hivelike network of slopey pockets most of which would be heinous on vertical but are more than sufficient at this angle. From the big ledge, make a few more moves straight up to a new anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
