About

TaiwanRocks was founded in Winter of 2011/2012 by 2 American climbers who met at LZS Bouldering Gym. The original purpose of TaiwanRocks was to provide sorely-needed English language climbing information in Taiwan, but it soon grew to become a bilingual site supporting both the foreign and local communities.

Mission

TaiwanRocks is primarily a non-profit initiative and is founded with the following mission:

  • Provide top-quality climbing information in English and Chinese
  • Improve climbing safety standards of both foreign and local climbers through education
  • Support local climbing initatives such as the rebolt effort and Long Dong Cleanup project
