地點:台南市白河區

攀登形態:運動攀登(先鋒)

如何去:

岩場入口位置

自行開車 – 國道三號白河交流道下車後,走172縣道往關子嶺方向,經過仙草國小後可選擇繼續走172或172乙,前者繞遠路但較大條好開,也會經過比較熱鬧的溫泉區。後者(172乙)則是較陡、路面較窄的蜿蜒山路,會經過大仙寺、碧雲寺及水火同源等名勝。白河交流道至關仔嶺岩場入口開車約需30分鐘。

停車: 離入口較近的第一片空地可以停4-6輛車。

公車 – 嘉義客運(7214)到「關子嶺嶺頂公園(或 崁頂公園)」,然後走4公里緩上坡到岩場入口。固定班次時刻表

簡介:關子嶺是南台灣攀岩天堂,岩質為石灰岩,有約50條、6個區域的各類型路線,其中以外傾面居多,難度則多集中在5.10+~5.12,適合新手的路線較少。在北台灣陰雨綿綿的冬季,岩友們常前往關子嶺,享受運動攀登、溫泉、甕仔雞與鄉間愜意的氣氛。

攀登季節: 秋、冬、早春最佳

Thanks to all those help putting up and making records of these areas and routes.  There are indeed still many places in Taiwan with great climbing potential!

*Note: Some climbing areas in this ebook are located in restricted zones and may require a permit.

大砲岩攀岩場

11536506_986467558059463_3881205837921509113_o

地點:台北市北投區

攀登形態:運動(頂繩為主),少許抱石、傳統攀登

如何去:陽明山泉源路與行義路交叉口(「惇敘工商」公車站),取泉源路下行500公尺後,可看到一涼亭與大磺嘴站牌,再往前約200米,可見靠山側的路旁有一黃色警告牌,牌後方有一山徑,取該山徑上坡即可到岩場。若搭公車,可搭至陽明山惇敘工商站或大磺嘴站。

簡介:大砲岩是台灣攀岩最早開發的岩場之一,有悠久的攀岩文化,而且很適合訓練。岩質為安山岩,大多為face小點路線,極考驗技巧,是練習腳踩的好去處。路線難度定得比龍洞、熱海等地嚴苛很多,一開始可能不易適應。

本岩場各區皆可找路上到岩頂平台架設top rope固定點。有些岩頂設有bolt anchor,有些則需綁樹及灌木。欲前往攀岩者務必具備架設固定點的能力。由於樹木多離崖邊有一段距離,記得攜帶夠長的扁帶、繩圈,並做好岩角防磨繩保護。

注意:陽明山國家公園管理處立牌告示此處禁止進入,違者最高罰款15,000

攀登季節:四季。冬天為台北雨季,不過每年情況不同,通常可攀爬日子仍多
