While waves crash against rocks, the auditorium-sized platforms between ocean and cliff become lounging sites for climbers and spectators alike. Routes are sent amid laughter and calls of encouragement from below. There is a genuine spirit of camaraderie and open warmth among the Long Dong climbers, with newcomers and visitors often welcomed with offers to share a belay or a bowl of noodles. Long a theatre of dreams for local climbers, Long Dong now deserves a wider stage in the climbing world. Move over Thailand, here comes Taiwan.
