Topos and Beta:

Ron’s Taiwan Climbing Page - Has some basic info.

An easily printable English pdf guide to guanziling has been compiled by Dom Benson, based on Wen-Dong’s online guanziling guidebook(which is itself an electronic version of the original Guanziling guidebook by Wang Hung Hsiang)

Climbio’s Guanziling section also has images and video of a few routes. Climbio has some routes which the other guides don’t and vice versa so it’s good to cross check both resources.

 

Rehai 熱海

Region: Taipei

Location:Approximately here(Google maps has not fully mapped this area)

The google map marker above will lead you to the general vicinity and you should be on 銀光巷(Yinguang lane) Keep on going on the road “銀光巷” past where Google maps claims it ends.

You will encounter a nice looking house and round mirror at a switchback going uphill.

Keep on going up the switchback, which leads to another switchback. on the third switchback you should see a stone trail leading into the forest.Take it!

Type of Climbing: Lead

Description: Close to Big Cannon Cliff, the rock at Rehai feels a bit more coarse. Unlike BCC, Rehai is bolted lead climbing. Climbs are short, and difficulty is mostly in the 5.8-5.10 range.

The crag is in a forested area and goes on quite a while. Even when you’d think the crag ends, if you keep on walking the ridgeline you will likely find another area.
