Flowers for Mao

It is not natural shape stone but I rally wanted to climb it. The sculpture if very legible and in fact not so easy to climb. The right, higher part still is a project. I like that one a lot.

Grade:  ★★★★

Accessibility: ●●●●●

Rock type: Granite (sculpture)

Estimated number of routes: 3

Routes difficulty: 6a-7a

GPS coordinates: 39.949827,116.411764

Place: Andingmen East Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing

How to get there: It is part of the “Yonghegong Lama Temple boulders” but only that one is located on the north part of the highway. To get there you need to cross the road near Yonghegong  Lama Temple or Andingmen bridge and after that head west to the gas station. The boulder is just 5 meters from it.
