Swallow cave topos

Swallow cave is fast proving to be the home of hard climbing in Kunming. Routes are still being bolted and plenty of projects are scattered about. These routes will surely all prove to be classics, they are long, steep and unforgiving, the perfect combination for a hard climb! That said, there are also a number of climbs in the lower grades, so there is fun to be had by all. The lower red wall is also being developed, this provides some amazing face climbing. Below the red face, the boulders are waiting to be climbed….

This crag is very difficult to photograph properly, so the tops might not do justice to the length or steepness of the climbs.
