Bouldering in Qingdao, China

Photos by Rocker - The coastal city of Qingdao in the Shandong province is known as one of China's major tourist areas. In recent years, however, the city has been host to a new kind of tourist: climbers seeking fun lines up the granite cliffs. Boulderfields scatter the land as well, from the valleys to the beaches. On rest days, climbers can check out the local markets, fresh seafood vendors, and mountain culture.
