    I’d love to meet other climbers with the same view.

I’ve been climbing over the last 5 years and I enjoy pretty much everything (from sports to multi-pitch). Email me (thiagoc.mba2016@london.edu) or WhatsApp me (+447754350184) in case you’d like to meet for a climbing session. Cheers, Thiago.

    • Hi Thiago!
      Until when will you be in Hong Kong? I will be there in the end of March, leaving 2nd of April and I would like to climb a little bit. Climbing for about 1,5years, so not that much experienced but eager to learn. 🙂

  10. Hi guys,

    I am spending few days in HK at the end of this week and was wondering if I was able to do some climbing there. I am free on Saturday 27th and Monday 29th. I have a harness, a couple of carabiners and few draws.

    Let mne know if anyone was going to do some outdoor on these days.

    Thanks

    Piotrek

  11. Hi all.

    I’m based in Hong Kong and looking for a climbing partner or two.

    I have no trip in particular planned at the moment as I’m busy the next couple of weekends, but I’m happy to go for a drink and make a plan from there (and climb as regularly as you want).

    I have a harness, boots, 50 meter rope, quick draws and safety carabiner.

    Whatsapp me on +852 6089 4469 or email me at mark.dn.agnew@hotmail.co.uk and we’ll organise a pint somewhere and pencil in some climbs. My girlfriend also climbs, so might well come along as well.

    Mark

  12. Hello-

    My husband and I are in town for a few days (15-18th Feb) and keen to get a days climbing in. Anyone free and fancy helping out some Europeans? (hehe). We’ve just spent the last month climbing in Thailand and Laos. Have most of our gear- no quickdraws or slings for anchoring, but 70m rope and our own shoes/ harness/ atc etc… so keen to hook up with some other climbers to share gear too. Happy to lead 5’s/ 6a’s, lots of belaying experience, so happy to support more advanced climbers too.

    Drop me an email on eestaylor@hotmail.co.uk if you’re keen!

    Best,
    Emma

  13. It is easy to fix. Just buy an M10 nut (stainless steel is better) and place the hanger back on the screw fixing it with the nut. You can screwing in place with your fingers first than you can tighten it with a 17mm spanner or players.

  14. hi guys, I just came back from Black Crag and there is one bolt that came out on the small traverse section, please wait until that bolt to be fixed before you get there, if you are beginner climbers.
    Please do your best to fix it, and if need any money contribution, no problem, just PM me.
    Many thanks

  15. Hi, Im coming to HK for work and have a little time off, so would love to get out onto the rock there. I have tuesday 9th feb, monday 15th and part of wed 24th free. Im from scotland so prefer trad and multipitch, but am happy to jump on anything. I dont have room in my luggage for rope and draws etc but will have harness, shoes, belay etc. Please let me know if you have room for another on a day out, or if you are going out as a group that I could perhaps meet up with for a route or two. About me : http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/profile.php?id=72691
    Best to contact by theropemonkey@gmail.com

  16. I’m coming in to HK for business and have a day off to play on 1/24. I’ve never climbed HK but would like to a partner to go explore the local climbing. I heard Tung Lung is a great first crag for sport moderates. About me: sport climb solid 5.11s, project 5.12s, Boulder V5/6, Trad 5.9/10a/b. I’m a light anchor (100lbs/45kg) so that’s why I prefer either a light climbing partner, or to go climbing with a group. Let me know if you want to get together to climb and what gear you can offer.

      • Hey Ricardo,
        Im waiting to hear back from another potential climbing buddy. How big is your group? Do you already have plan for meeting tomorrow? Maybe I can converge with your group at a time and place. Do you have number or email i can contact you at? Mine is d.trang.n@gmail.com
        -Dee

        • We’re two people only, but it’s freezing outside (just came back from the crag and my fingers are numb from crimping), and tomorrow it’s gonna be worse, according to the forecast. Dunno if my partner will be up for it with these temps…

  17. Hello – I will be traveling to Hong Kong in February, looking to go boulder outside. is there anywhere that I could rent a crash pad?

  18. Hello !

    My name is Karel , Have been climbing for around a year. I’m visiting HK from 7-17 february with a friend who’s not climbing.
    I am looking for an outdoor climbing partner / group to climb around Hong Kong for a few days during this period. I’m comfortable leading
    6a + / 5.10c. I’m bringing my own gear, belay devices, quickdraws, harness, etc, everything except a rope (which can be rented! )

    • Hi Karel, my husband and I will be in town from 6-9th Feb. I am a newbie lead climber and never done outdoor before. My husband will be there (a seasoned outdoor climber) but he has never done lead belaying. We can certainly hangout if you are free on either 7 or 8 Feb! Beacon Hill would be a good place as it is around that range.

      P.S: I was a Hong Kong native until I permanently relocated to Singapore a few years back and I still know the nooks and crannies of Hong Kong. Thus we can totally help each other out! 🙂

      • Hey Teresa ! So I understand that at least one of you is an experienced lead belayer ? If so, I would love to go climbing with you guys on the 8th . Beacon Hill sounds like a good starting point, pretty close and not too difficult !
        my email is k.p.spruit@gmail.com

    • Hi Karel- my husband and I are in town for a few days and keen to climb either on the 16th or 17th of Feb. We’ve just been climbing in Thailand and Laos, not advanced climbers (6a’s mostly), but lots of time belaying/ on the rock the past few years. We have most our gear- including a 70m rope, but no quickdraws/ slings for anchoring. Drop me a line if you’re interested to climb 🙂 (eestaylor@hotmail.co.uk) Best wishes, Emma.

  19. Hi, I am in HK from 11th till 16th January and would love to explore some of the crags. Indoors I climb up to V4 boulder / 6b lead but much reduced outdoors, have a set of draws and my own gear (helmet, harness, belay) but no rope. Also would just love to know where to rent a boulder mat 🙂

    Cheers

  20. Heading to Hong Kong for a week (25/2-4/3) and would love to boulder outside but don’t have any pads. I climb V4-V6 and my wife climbs V2-V3. Are boulders easy to find and pads available for rent?

  21. Hi

    I’m going to be in HK end of January and would like to climb some outdoors. I’m bouldering around V4-6 and I’m wondering what area is the best to go to in HK and is there anywhere I can rent a crashpad?

    Regards
    Laci

  22. Hi all,
    I’m looking for a outdoor climbing partner/group 22-28 Dec and 5-17Jan. I boulder v6-8, sportclimb 5.11-12. I don’t have ropes/draws.

    • Would you like to climb on the 27th? Thinking about going to a bouldering gym by myself, but would be nice to have a partner.

    • Hey Angus,
      I would also love to go climbing in the next days. Unfortunately, I also have no gear. Maybe we can rent stuff somewhere? Otherwise I would also be happy to check out the bouldering on Hong Kong Island. I’m climbing for 6 years now. Mainly sport and bouldering. Not super strong though (both < 7a).

      Andy

    • Hey Angus,
      I would love to go climbing in the next days. Unfortunately, I also do not have any gear with me. Maybe we can rent stuff somewhere?

      cheers,

      Andy

      • Hi Ed, my travel plans changed at last minute so I’m not in HK at the moment. I plan to be in HK in February and I will check back with forums then to see who’s in town. Thanks for responding. Tung Lung was going to be my destination if I had made my way to HK

        • No problem. I’m headed to Yangshuo for Xmas and the new year and travelling wherever the rock takes me but might be around in Feb some as I fly out of Hong Kong Feb 13th.

  28. Hi, I’m looking for climbing partner(s) for the weekend Nov.28-29 (and December too), preferably for sport climbing somewhere outdoors.
    I do have quite some climbing experience (also with trad. climbing and mountaineering), but didn’t climb much last cca. 3 years, getting back to climbing for last 3 months. I could possibly lead-climb up to F6a.
    But currently don’t have a rope nor quick-draws in HK…thus looking for someone ideally with the gear.

  29. Hi everyone!
    I am coming to HK for a little while and am looking for climbing pals. I’ll be free to climb between the 5th and 15th of December.
    I’ll have a sport rack but no rope unfortunately. I am climbing up to 7a in French grading, but I am happy to climb whatever!
    Drop me an email if you can help a brother out!

    Will

    • Hey Will, I’m kicking about for the next week if you want to do some sport. I’m trying to hit up hk climbers for Tung Lung tomorrow, but we can just rock up there if there’s two of us. I’ve a rope with me, and can theoretically climb 7’s when my heads good. Free to the 15th too if you want to do a few more days. I might be misunderstanding wordpress but I don’t think you left an email address bother! 😀

  31. Hello 🙂 I will be climbing on Tung Lung Chau with friends on the weekend of 5th and 6th. Because it is my first time there and perhaps the only chance to climb there for some time, I would like to stay maybe 1 or 2 days more (Monday/Tuesday), however my friends are all returning to work. If any experienced climber is looking for a partner or a group wouldn’t mind me join, please let me know! Sport or trad – however I have no trad gear with me. fancito at gmail is the best way to reach me. thanks!

  48. Hello,
    My boyfriend and I are climbers from Canada and we were hoping to find somebody to go sport climbing with sometime between Oct 19 to 21. We are both comfortable lead belaying and climbing up to 5.10 (US grading… I think this translates to 6?). I’d be willing to try some 5.11s too, though I try to stick to easier stuff when I’m somewhere new! We will have our shoes and harnesses, but no ropes or draws. We can bring some extra carabiners, draws, slings, atc/grigri if needed.
    My email address is supercoolheidi@hotmail.com. We are looking forward to meeting some HK climbers!
    Heidi

  49. Climbing buddy/buddies required for Hong Kong & a quick visit to Yangshou – Mid Nov to early Dec.
    I’m from the UK and will be visiting from mid November to early December. Keen to sample some of the great climbing opportunities, I’ll be near Guilin City 21st -23rd Nov with some non-climbing friends (exact date to be confirmed). it would be good to sample some of the legendary yangshou sport climbing crags while I’m there. Is anyone available to climb during this period with a UK based climber? I’m happy doing anything really; onsight up to 7a+ on a good day and maybe redpoint a little harder occasionally. Sue.
