Climb Liming


Climbing beautiful red sand stone splitters in Liming. This route is Brazen Hussie a 5.10+ at the Guardian Wall

Just one and a half hours from Shigu is the village of Liming, the "Indian Creek of China". As you approach the town along the newly built road you'll hardly believe your eyes as towering red sand stone up to 200m high makes a sudden appearance and a stark contrast from the limestone of Shigu. This has already been established as China's top traditional climbing destination with around 200 routes of eye watering cracks.

There's now plenty of information about Liming on the web. If you are looking for a guide book, we have them for sale in the guest house. Mike Dobie is currently working on a new guide which should be ready this year.

If you plan on visiting Liming we recommend as a minimum to take two sets of Camelot C4 #0.3 to #3, one #4 and one #5, and one Camelot C3 #0 #00 and #000 (or equivalents in another brand). If you have them, three sets would be better and take doubles of #4 #5 #6 if you like it wide.
