Climbers are advised to take extra precautions and be extremely careful when climbing route 70 or surrounding routes 68,69, 70, or 71.

For rock climbers new to Long Dong, while most sport routes are fine, certain sections of crags do have loose rock or old bolts.

Climbers going to Long Dong are advised to get a copy of the excellent guidebook, check our rebolt status page, and use caution and common sense when climbing in crags with known loose rock.
