Huu Lung is located in Lang Son province, approximatively 110 kms North-East from Hanoi. Developed by Francis Haden and VietClimb back in May 2012, this area is very promising and might become the best crag (sport routes and multi-pitches) of Vietnam.
General: 130m high, predominantly vertical wall of compact limestone offering single and multi-pitch routes up to 3 pitches long. The wall is a mere 5 minutes walk from the road, is east facing and stays dry in light rain. The rock quality in particular is excellent, featuring huecos, tufas and positive crimps. There is at that point 15 routes, from 6a to 7b+ (most of them are 25m high) and 2 multi-pitches (3 pitches, 60m high). More routes are planned to be bolted in the next months.
Gear: all fixed protection uses marine grade stainless steel, the majority of bolts are of the glue‐in resin type. Abseil stations and lowers offs consist of a minimum of 2 bolts equipped with rappel rings. Bolts are reasonably closely spaced to assist with working routes and to safeguard against dangerous falls near the ground. A single 60m rope is sufficient but climbers are advised to use a 65m or ideally a 70m rope. The majority of routes are 30m long and will require up to 18 quickdraws.
Cultural Consideration: attention is drawn to the fact that the area is not used to climbers or the presence of foreigners on a regular basis. Climbers must be mindful of their behavior to ensure continued access. Please contact us for more details.
