See the Tab's below for some useful information about visiting and climbing in Liming, Laojunshan:
We have paid for all the fixed gear our selves. We have made the Anchors with 10 mm expansion bolts which is all we could afford. However it’s not a very safe or longterm solution. We would like to change all the Anchors here for glue in bolts in the future, but for now we recommend to backup all routes that you setup tope ropes on with Trad gear and only use the bolts for lowering off. Please remember that if you climb here and use our bolts you are doing it at your own risk and we take know responsibility for your safety. Thanks Mike Dobie and Kailas for funding about 98% of the route development here.
If you are coming here to develop routes then you are very welcome. Here is some info to help you on your way:
Safety, When developing new routes you often need to remove loos rocks. Make shore that they will not hit people, animals or damage local property like fields or houses. We will lose the right to climb here if anything goes wrong as Laojunshan and Liming are part of a government tourist park.
Think about the people who will climb your route after you.
The route is very hard so you aid up to the top. You know you cannot free it so you leave it with many loos rocks and very dirty. Solution, even if you cannot climb it your self you have a responsibility to at least make it safe for other people, remove loos rocks.
I climbed a new route but it’s very dirty. THEN CLEAN IT! even if it takes you the next two days to clean a route that you climbed in a few hours you as a developer want to be known for making grate routes not dirty and unpleasant ones that know one wants to climb…
But I made a dirty and dangers route and I have know time to finish it. OK make a note of what it was and where it was in the forum or tell us in the sites contact form then we can make a note in the guidebook.
Bolts, this is a trad climbing destination so please just use bolts for the anchors. The only exception is if the route is not safe on natural gear, then you can use bolts to make it safe. Retro bolting is not permitted. Any retro bolts will be removed.
- And the most important thing. Have fun :-) We all like different styles and grades of routes. So dream big, think of what might be possible and see of it works.
As only climbers will come up to the cliffs here please take your rubbish home. This includes your old tape gloves, sweet rappers etc.
Thank you :-)
Laojunshan is a Chinese national park so entrance fees are required. 80 RMB for an adult and 40 RMB if you are a student. For now the local government is allowing rock climbing me! Please help us to keep this open for everyone. Take your litter home, be friendly to the locals and nock off big rock that could damange things!
