Sorry I just now saw this. First, go to Salvador's Coffee House (it's in the LP guidebook); a dear friend of mine, Colin, is one of the owners and is a treasure trove of information around Yunnan. Tell him Christine sent you. :) There is climbing developed more so in Dali (which is around a 40-minute flight or a few hours drive to the west from Kunming) around ErHai Lake. That whole area is awesome ...you should check it out for the culture and the outdoors. You can ask Colin about finding a ride out there. And while you're in there, grab some organic homemade chow...they support local, organic farming and cultivate their own honey too! Have a great time and PM me if you have any more questions.
