Climbing in Japan

Sportclimbing & bouldering in Horai

Climbers are not allowed to leave quick-draws hanging from the routes overnight. According to the priests in charge of the many shrines on Mount Horai, this would greatly upset the numerous spirits that visits the forest; therefore, all QDs have to be taken down before nightfall.

That sounds quite charming and cute 🙂

If you have some dead time on a slow Monday morning, like I had, I highly recommend Jonas Wiklund’s climbing stories from Japan.
