Introduction form the Liming rock climbing guide:
" Nestled in the three river gorges scenic area in Northwestern Yunnan lays Laojunshan Park and a sandstone mecca named Liming (2100 meters). This area is a paradise for the simple fact of rich sandstone formations, unique and protected wild- life, 4500 meter peaks, outdoor adventure, and minority groups that are still rela- tively isolated from developing China. The park was established in the 1970’s and is China’s second National Park. Loajunshan park has become a leader in Yunnan and all of China for outdoor recreation opportunities. The area is open for mountain bik- ing, rock climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, and trekking for Chinese and for- eigners alike. With many hubs and entry points to the park, there is a wonder of things to discover.
The town of Liming is a central hub for the Lisu, Naxi, and Yi cultures and one cannot miss the 100-200 meter high walls of sandstone looming overhead. Hav- ing such a large concen- tration of sandstone in the vicinity makes this small settlement’s greatest attraction, and gave way to the one of the first sandstone Traditional Rock Climbing area in China. Crack systems here are very similar to the climbing in places like Indian Creek and the desert towers in the United States. Throughout history the local people have scaled these cliffs in search of beehives and bird’s nests, a climbing tradition that started perhaps centuries ago. Now tradi- tional rock climbers are pushing this an- cient attitude of climbing to new heights. We invite you to take a trip to this unde- veloped part of the world and discover the truly unique Liming." Mike Dobie, Liming Rock Climbing 2011 ©.
