Event TITLE:“Honor and Fun”
This event features deep-water soloing, which is always highly enjoyable to watch, especially where the backdrop is the awe-inspiring Li River in Yangshuo. The organizing committee has set up an artificial climbing wall that reaches many meters into the air, and participants must climb extremely difficult routes without the protection of a rope. Those who cannot hold on will fall directly into the Li River.

International and domestic climbers will be invited to share the experience and passion of climbing. Also this event includes: famous athletes climb experience sharing; exchange of natural rock climbing experience and music party.
