Big Canon 大炮岩, Yangmingshan, GPS: 25°08.552′ N, 121°31.214′ E
My second day here in Taiwan and I’m off with a bang. Found a meetup group and joined to go climbing for my first outdoor climbing experience at Big Canon, Yangmingshan.
It’s easily accessible from Xinbeitou stop off the redline. We luckily had been able to drive up to the climbing location, but I can’t imagine it being more than an hour hike up there.
This place is pretty amazing, given that on a Saturday afternoon, and many of the routes were left open. Aside from that there were some pretty beautiful views of Taipei city. Hooks are already set up at the top and there is path allowing climbers to walk up to the top and setup the belay ropes.
