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.

From the 11th to the 13th of January, a VietClimb team composed of Hoa, Thinh, Josh and JV participated at the Gravical competition in Singapore. It was the first time for local climbers to sign up for a bouldering competition gathering climbers from all South-East Asia. Our main objective at this event was to reach out to the climbing community, engage participants and to promote sports-climbing. It’s great for us to take a part in the climbing regional scene and to be inspired by stronger climbers to train harder! We hope to give to everyone a better understanding of climbing as a sport in Vietnam!
After a great success last year, the Christmas Bouldering Competition hosted by VietClimb is back! This competition is designed to be a fun, but competitive event. It will be an excellent way to improve your climbing and a great way to get fit— and stay fit— over the winter months. As an added incentive, the winners will go home with an extra special gift just in time for Christmas!
What is a bouldering competition? Competitors will work through a series of climbing problems with a time limit. Points will be awarded for completing each problems.
Registration dates: 22/11/2012-9/12/2012. Participation fees: Members: 150,000 VND | Non-members: 200,000 VND
