  9. I am looking to recruit an IT type who loves climbing and being outdoors for work and has an interest in photography. The job involves installing and maintaining outdoor camera units and manage the image data to back-up drives and remote servers. It’s a job that can be part-time with flexible hours. He or she needs to be familiar with all safety requirements associated with climbing towers and working from heights. If you know anyone in your climbing network who might be interested please ask them to contact me for more details.

  10. Hi All,

    I’m visiting June 18th-July 2nd for a quick 2 week study abroad program and hoping to get some outdoor climbing in while I’m there. I’m planning to bring shoes and a harness and meeting up with local climbers to hop on some classic routes in the area. Message me if you’re interested!

    I can lead 5.11+ but I’m really just looking to have fun on some classics in the area.

    • Hey Eric, I’m new to the sport but I do have gear if you’re up to climb sometime together before you leave 🙂

      Cheers,
      Mun

  11. Hi,

    Me and two friends are planning to visit Hong Kong and do some climbing.
    We wander if there are any permits or certificates needed for climbing in HK.
    For climbing in Belgium we need to purchase a year card from the Begium Apline Association and for Climbing in Germany no permits or certificates are needed.
    So, we want to know what the climbing customs are in HK.

    Thank you for your replies.

  19. just wanted to see what people thought about getting to crags in HK. Is it going to be cheaper to get train & taxis or rent a car for the whole 2 weeks? Main problem I can see is finding a hostel with parking.

  21. Hello!

    I may be visiting Hong Kong in May this year (2015) and would like to try some climbing there. I’ve climbed outside a few times, primarily sport/lead and top roping. I would be going alone, would anyone be able to meet up and climb with me? I am open to any areas, but I will be Staying in Sai Kung, but traveling shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

    Thanks!

    Dani

  22. There is a letter posted on Tung Lung the government is studying potential site for building Columbarium. The letter dated 16 January, we only has two weeks to write for objection. If it happen…Would it be the end of a piece of paradise for climbing, camping in HongKong. Or would it make access to island easier.

    • we have two weeks to object the site investigation work proposal. I just call the number on the letter which is a voice box and no reply so far. Send your letter of objection to help to preserve ourdoor activities, camping and climbing on the island by fax to Mr. Lee, Lands Department Fax no. : 27920706

    • I have call the phone on the letter, voice mail and no reply. Then, found out direct number at Lands Department. Mr Lee, 27917429. Please send your objection letter by fax address to Mr. Lee 27920706. Help to preserve one of the last piece of green space for camping, climbing and all outdoor activities in Hong Kong.

  23. Sai Wan Ho Tung Lung Chau ferry is closed indefinitely. What other way can I get to Technical wall? Thanks.

  24. Hi guys, please disregard the first post, i have previously been a member here for years but have somehow forgot my user and email address ‘Dohh’
    Found something interesting that you guys might have already tryed
    http://www.plastisteel.co.uk
    Its a thermoplastic polymer that has a yield strength higher than concrete yet becomes a putty at boiling temperature,
    thinking of trying to make a few parts for the GT4 with it, interior stuff gauge surrounds, side skirt moldings, clips and stuff, it seems shit hot and worth a try for the price!
    they say on the website it is also reusable and fuel & oil resistant so it might stand up to fiberglass epoxies and allow for easy molds to be made

  25. Hello everyone. I will be in Hong Kong for a convention and wanted to get some climbing while I am here. Looking for a climbing partner for either Friday, March 7th or Saturday, March 8th. I climb (sports) at a 5.10 (5a,5b). I will have my shoes, and harness. I will not have draws and rope. If interested, email me at: cillerdo@gmail.com

    Thanks, Charles

  26. I have heard that Austin Powers is to be closed due to the slope stabilisation works going on near Central. Is there any truth to this?

  27. Hi,
    I’m moving to HK in January untill June. I’d love to go climbing as much as possible (week-end). I have a harness and shoes but no rope.
    Hope to see you soon 🙂

  28. Hey there,

    We’re a couple thinking about going to Hk in january/february. We’d like to know the best areas for sport climbing with grades between 6a and 8a+. As well to know how the conditions are in this time of the year (humedity). Cheers,

    Grug&Anabel

  29. Hello!
    May I ask if you can easily rent a bouldering pad in HK?
    Also, does anyone have favorite climbing areas to recommend for visiting climbers?

  30. Thanks for the reply! Which crag on Cape Coll would you recommend for this? I have never climbed there. Beacon Hill probably seems easiest unless this weather miraculously clears– thanks!

  31. Hi all. We are probably going to be climbing in HK from Friday 24-Sunday 26th over from Shenzhen and are trying to find an area with a lot of good single pitch sport routes and a relatively flat belay area or at least free of too many cliffs as our 4 year old will be with us (no stranger to the crags and did a great job on Tsuen Wan boulders a few weeks ago). Ideally we would go to Tung Lung Chau but that is too dangerous for just the three of us with the proximity to the waves. Any ideas about Kowloon Peak area, Eagle Crag, Temple Crag or ??? Also, what about the availability of very cheap basic lodging nearby? Beacon Hill is always an option but prefer not to as want to check out a new area, and Lion Rock seems to steep. Also single pitch trad is an option but not preferred as too much gear. Thanks and hope to see you out there!

    • Plenty of people do TL with small kids so I’d still say that’s your best bet – if the weathers good there should be others around to help you keep an eye on things / give belays etc

      The only other areas easily approachable / relatively safe with small kids are prob Beacon Hill and bits of Cape Coll.
