Grand Auditorium

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Grand Auditorium

Dragon Cave's Grand Auditorium is often admired...from a distance. The general feeling seems to be that it is best left alone. Will those rocks actually hold together?

Dragon Cave-Wedding Route

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Dragon Cave-Wedding Route

The "ultra-classic" easy lead at Dragon Cave. The Wedding Route is a 5.5 sport climb. But the crux is getting off the ground and to the first bolt and probably requires a 5.7 move.

GwanDzLing is a small limestone climbing area near ChiaYi. The rock is soft and can be quite wet. But hey, you climb 'em where you got 'em. Extreme Rock is the first cliff you come to on the hike in.
