We observed the field of GRB 231129A detected by Swift (J.D. Gropp, GCN 35208), INTEGRAL (S.Mereghetti et al., GCN 35209), and GECAM-C (Wen-Long Zhang et al., GCN 35210), using the  100cm C telescope (100C) located at Altay, Xinjiang, China. Observations started at 12:13:36.29 UT on 2023-11-29, i.e., 7.13 hr after the Swift/BAT trigger, and 30*120s frames are obtained in the Sloan-r band.

No credible optical transient is detected in our stacked images within the refined Swift/XRT error region (Burrows et al., GCN 35218), down to a 3-sigma upper limit of r > 21.6 mag, calibrated with nearby PanSTARRS stars and not corrected for Galactic extinction.
