A quick update on some of the recent updates we’ve added to http://www.hongkongclimbing.com:
Updated Summary Data:
Want a bit more guidance or help to select your crag for the day, then look no further than the updated summary page and HK Graded List here
New Crag Guides:
New/updated pages have now been added for the following
Tate’s Cairn – rediscovered crag
Kai Kung Leng – finally a guide for this bouldering area
Mount Parker – a major new climbing area on HK Island
Garden Buttress – a great little afternoon venue
General Rock – granite slabs anyone?
Morning Buttress – get this roof off-width skills refined
Hero Crag – a lovely crag and boulder set on Ma On Shan
Gog & Magog – One of Kowloon Peaks more interesting, yet sadly under-visited buttresses
Salong Crag – a fine collection of routes above the Gold Coast
Black’s Link – updated info to capture all developments, trad and sport
Sai Kung Crags – initial updates for Spider Rock and Pak Tam Wall. Info here is very limited so if anyone has good topo photos or more recent data, let us know.
Massive thanks to everyone who contributed to these, especially Bob Moseley, Rocky Lok, Ray Lee and Jack Lin
We also know there’s some issues with the route descriptions for Devil’s Peak (thanks to Bob again for his on-going help in figuring out what goes where here – its all got a bit confusing with routes criss-crossing each other now) and the lower walls of Sea Gully, which we’re doing our best to research and sort out
Refreshed Forum Interface:
We’ve recently upgraded out WordPress subscription to a more costly version that facilitates plug-in’s. As such, a bb2 Forum interface has been added here to make this more user-friendly.
A number of free to download and use refined/new mini-guides have been uploaded here. For best results, print these Booklet style in Adobe Acrobat and then simply fold and staple along the spine. Bingo! Your own ready to go guidebooks!
Climbing Wall Update
Updated summary of all the climbing gyms in HK – damn there’s a lot of them now! See here for details
We’re also in the process of updating all crag approach maps etc. If you have any suggestions for refinement of these (or any other updates) be sure to let us know at email@example.com
Keep your eyes peeled as we’ll keep adding / refreshing content over the months to come
