The Gash is a new crag with loads of potential. The Scorched earth wall is the best developed area, with some really cool face climbing and a few open projects for those with strong crimping fingers. Recently Fool’s errand was opened at the Library wall, going at about 6c/+, I reckon this to be one of the finest routes of that grade in Kunming. Then there are a couple of 40m climbs out right,at the Infinity wall, going at about 7a and 7a.? These are well worth climbing, they just get more and more fun the higher you go.
This crag has morning shade, great camping and usually catches a cool breeze, allowing you to climb into the afternoon sun without too many problems. A mix of technical, crimpy climbing with some pumpy sections in between. No fires in the dry season, no matter how tempting! There are very strict laws prohibiting this, including some jail time…. As always, please be aware of loose rock when climbing.
