QianGuang Temple crag is one of the oldest climbing areas in southern Taiwan.  Bolting started in the 1980s, and top rope climbing can be traced to even earlier.  Sadly, this historic crag is now greatly damaged: part of the walls collapsed in early July and about half of the routes there disappeared forever.  The cause of the incident is still under investigation, but it is probably associated with the “mining for lost treasure project” which started in February this year.  It is already not the first mining project near the crag.  According to unverified rumors, Japanese army buried a lot of treasure across Taiwan during their colonization period.  Shoushan is believed to be one of the hot spots and has attracted many treasure hunters. The excavation project was suspended after the walls collapsed.  For the incidence at a glance, please check this page (in Chinese). Read the rest of this entry »
