Over the Moon in Yangshuo

So we have been out and about, mainly climbing single pitch sports climbs but did quickly do a supposed 5 pitch route in just 3 rope lengths. The scenery is still amazing, seeing different things from different places.
Moon Hill is an amazing place to be. Took a few falls of increasing length up there too - but a guess this is sports climbing so its suppose to happen. Its so steep its an effort to get back in contact with the rock. Weee...

Moon Hill, Yangshuo - from the bottom. Most of the climbing is on the other side which is in the shade.
View through the Moon Hill arch - we climbed on the rock to the very right of the picture.
Is this a water buffalo or an Ox? The horny beasts are all over the place - wallowing in water and working the fields.

At last we found a river for a cooling mid climbing swim - near Twin Gates.

Jo starting the cycle back from Twin Gates (behind) - excellent climbing or orange limestone around the two caves.
