About China Bend:

Steep Limestone climbing on a large mix of features from Tufa Pulls to Overhang Blocks. China Bend was born as a Sport Crag on January 01 1995 through the Vision of Marty Bland, Russ Schultz, Shawn Talley and Bill Centenari. There four names come up more than 43 times on 60 routes As a Winter Sport Crag China Bend really Shines, the crag faces south, it's not uncomon to be climbing in T shirts in January. The summers are smoking hot, so can be some of the late springs/early falls. During this same time the Rattlesnakes are out. So Beware.
