2013 Taiwan Rock Climbing Video Highlight

2013 Taiwan Rock Climbing 台灣2013攀岩紀錄

Description

Taiwan is an island in the East China Sea 110 miles off the coast of Mainland China and astride the Tropic of Cancer. The island is roughly one-third the size of Tennessee, with a population of 23 million people. The primary language is Mandarin Chinese, with Taiwanese and Hakkanese dialects also used.

Unlike most Pacific islands which are volcanic, Taiwan is tectonic in origin, and its central mountain range is loaded with wilderness peaks up to 13,000 feet. The highest peak, Yushan, is 3,952m and features an impressive-looking north face with various alpine challenges.

Rock climbing areas in Taiwan including Guanzhiling (limestone sport climbing in Chiayi County), bouldering in and around Taroko Gorge National Park (on the east coast), Dapaoyan (good volcanic cragging on small cliffs at Yangmingshan, a mountain park on the north side of Taipei city), and riverbed bouldering areas in the mountains of Hsinchu and Miaoli counties. The centerpiece of Taiwan rock climbing, however, is Long Dong (“dragon’s cave” in Chinese), with over a mile of wave-battered, sun-baked sea cliffs of very compact Silin sandstone on the beautifully rugged northeast coast of the island.

Taiwan Rock Climbing Longdong – Longlane – 龍洞長巷攀岩

20140317 Longdong Rock climbing (4)

這次是Andrew, Daria 與 Lukas在台灣的第一次戶外攀岩。這也是Daria與Lukas的第一次戶外攀岩體驗。這次大家表現的都相當好,完成了一些5.10的路線,但是很可惜的因為Chet忙著確保這次的照片並不多。

It’s Andrew, Daria, Lukas’s first rock climbing experience in Taiwan. It’s even Daria and Lukas’s first outdoor experience. The all did pretty well. Finish some 5.10 on top rope. Too bad there aren’t too many pictures to share this time because Chet is busy belaying them.

長巷

相較於龍洞遠近馳名的壯闊景色,長巷裡面顯得有些擁擠。攀岩者和路線都被集中在有限的空間內。不過這裡卻有大量頂級的5.10及5.11運動路線。另外,在夏季炎熱的上午,這裡也是躲避烈日曝曬的好地方。大部分的路線都由王宏祥Rebolt過。

-台灣龍洞攀岩路線書

LongLane

In contrast to the spectacular open air scenery for which Long Dong is famous, the interior of Long Lane is somewhat claustrophobic, with climbers and routes clustered together in a confined space.

There is, however, good climbing, and lots of it, with large selection of high quality bolted 5.10 and 5.11 climbs. In addition, it is cool and shady on hot summer mornings. Most of the routes were rebolted in 2005 by Sean Wang.

Deep Beer Soloing #10 深度啤酒攀登

Deep Beer Soloing #10

每月舉辦的 Deep Beer Soloing (DBS) 是台灣攀岩者的聚會活動,這場活動並非只有喝酒聊天而已,在 DBS 中我們鼓勵新攀岩朋友們互相認識、學習、甚至扶持同伴。

DBS 是一個台灣所有攀岩者可以享受美食、分享經驗、規劃未來的聚會活動。

如果你要一起去啤酒屋, 19:30和我在芝山站1號出口見. 如果你要分開來…20:00在啤酒屋迎接你!

At the monthly Deep Beer Soloing, rock climbers will come together for one night to utter more than a just few words to each other. Come to Beer Station and enjoy food (and of course beer) amongst like-minded people, make future climbing plans, meet new friends and help strengthen the Taipei climbing community. If you’re new to the sport, or have never tried it before but are interested; you’re more than welcome to come along to learn about climbing and make valuable connections.

Beer Station is located at 103 ZhongCheng Road, Section 1, Tien Mu (Shilin Dist.). I (Chris) will be at Zhishan Station Exit 1 at 7:30 PM to meet anyone that wants to make the 5-10 minute walk over there together. I will also post a map here in the event for the people wanting to come separately but it’s not hard to find, just look for the brightly lit place with a big Native American gentleman on the outside.

Also free beer if you got your face measured.

kaohsiung rock climbing (2)

All the amazing picutres from Jason’s adventure at Kaohsiung during 228 weekend.

Shaun, Hugo Aiken, Lou Cappadona, Julien Manchuelle, and myself went through three action packed days of climbing up sharp limestone walls of KS, doing our first night climbing, camping in the jungle, and fighting monkeys, and finding a mountain dojo to test ourselves. These are some of the photos of our trip

Mucho thanks to all the others that helped make this trip the “epic” that it was Daisy Hsu, James Dunnet, Assis Hou, Travis Keller, Kevin Ives and all the other KS climbing fam bam.

Much love Shaun, hope you continue to crush back in Vietnam and I will be sure to see ya soon.
