We have been climbing! Yangshuo.

We are now on our fourth day in Yangshuo and are settling into life here. Although very humid and hot we have been hiring bicycles and cycling along the flat roads and tracks through paddy fields to the local crags. Some good climbing has been had, although nothing too hard yet (soo hot) and Jo has been leading routes as well.

Out of focus photo if me on a 5.10d, must do better (photos and grade!)

The countryside around here is really scenic. Rock towers, the river, Ox in fields and locals in typical Chinese hats. The town has loads of places to eat, drink and be asked again and again if you want whatever. Then quite the main street even looks nice.
