I'm heading off to Taiwan (taipei) in a few weeks for the rest of the year, and my first thought was "I hope
there's something to climb there". So, does anyone know anything about climbing there, of any sort, gym
boulder, sport, trad...? Thanks

Frances

From rockclimbing.com
"There is superb climbing in Taiwan, but the rock climbing is not as abundant as this very mountainous island would seem to offer. Of particular note are the beautiful sea cliffs of LungTung (Dragon Cave), Taiwan's premier rock climbing area. If you are in Taiwan, LungTung is a "must stop" on any climber's itinerary. (LungTung is located above the "p" in "Taipei" on the map linked below.) Mountain hiking is an enjoyable activity on this subtropical island. The highest peak, Jade Mountain, is 3952 meters tall and there are over 100 peaks above 3000 meters in height. Along with LungTung, there are other rock climbing spots around Taiwan and probably hundreds of unclimbed cliffs. Climbing could be developed on the off-shore island of PengHu as well (basalt cliffs on the ocean). Have a look around here at some of Taiwan's climbing possibilities. But if you're headed this way, be sure to at least bring your shoes and harness. You can probably find a friendly local climber willing to show you around."

A friend spent a year there and sent back a few digital stills of the bouldering around Kenting





Also, he stumbled into this nice wall under a freeway, Taipei's a big city, there's sure to be a few climbers
