Big Cannon Cliff Now Very Illegal to Climb at

bcc signs

Always a bit legally sketchy, Taiwanese climber “Two Teeth” reports that climbing at Big Cannon Cliff(Da Pau Yen) has now become very very illegal, based on the number of new signs and warning tape that has been erected at the entrance to the trail. The new signs promise a hefty fine of $15,000TWD if caught in the area.

Rather than a specific warning towards climbers, the current signs restrict access in general to the path.  While we are not sure if enforcement will be increased compared to the past, it does seem like park officials are taking this more seriously than before. We advise climbers looking for climbing in the Beitou area to consider Rehai instead, which remains unrestricted as it doesn’t fall under Yangmingshan park jursidiction.

Beitou IDEA Re-opening as Da Vinci Rock Climbing Gym on July 19th

Beitou Sports Center’s IDEA Climbing Gym, which has been closed for close to a year, has finally finished renovations and is re-opening July 19th as Da Vinci Rock Climbing Gym run by Gaia Adventure School.

Featuring new management, the gym has been completely cleaned and reset with brand new Entreprise holds over the existing panels  as well as the old-school “organs”(incut circular holds) you know and love.

The new gym’s opening hours have been adjusted, and will be weekdays 1pm to 9:30pm and weekends 9am to 7pm. Tickets will be $150 per day, or $80 for students, both of which seem reasonable for a roped climbing gym in Taipei. Interestingly, the “climbing experience” package which includes equipment rental is the same $150 price.
