    I am in Shenzhen for work for the next 5-6 weeks and am looking to climb regularly 3X week and get a climbing trainer (I have a climbing trip to Croatia planned in May and need to level up!)

    I will be visiting HK in late April with some friends and am very keen to sample some of the local climbing.

  38. Hi 🙂

    My friend and I would be in hong kong from 5-9 aug. We are relatively new to outdoor climbing and would like to seek for some advice. I know that Beacon HIll and Tung Lung has walls that are easy for beginners. We will planning to head over to beacon hill on sat 6 aug and tung lung on 7 aug. I checked out the ratings, F5+ is the F part of the International French Adjectival System (IFAS) representing easy? and the rating of HS 4 is a Adjectival grade? meaning hard severe?


    • this is my suggestion
      Direction 1 = more easy route + easy access = Black Crag, Beacon-Hill
      Direction 2 = want some easy to meidum difficulty route 6c ( 5.11a ) + traffic easy = Beacon Hill, Cape Collinson, Monkey Butress, Central Crag
      Direction 3 = if no need hurry to leave + want more variety route + variety difficulties = Tung Long Island, Central Crag, Cape Collinson, Monkey Butress
      Direction 4 = If already went to Tung Long Island + want new place = Cape Collinsion, Beacon Hill, Central Crag, Black Crags, Monkey Butress
      Direction 5 = In summer time, too hot…. Near urban area + need shelter = Cape Collinson, Beacon Hill, Black Crags, Monkey Butress, Central Crag

    • you can send me email address I can send you the route details ( with photos and rating )
      for beginner all the 5.9, 5.8 are OK, if you can interesting, I can go with

  39. Hi all,

    Can someone recommend a crag that has easy access(Without abseiling) in Hong Kong besides Tung Lung Chau? We’ll be in Hong Kong from 2-5 July. We understand there might be bad weather therefore our only Sunday might not be an option to go Tung Lung Chau. }:


    • Black Cary ,Monkey Butress, Beacon Hill, Central Crag….if you want I can go with you, send me email

    • U can taxi up to the front door of Villa Aliya (帝景園) and then hike up to Old Peak Road, there is a pavilion at the first sign, the entrance just behind it. Or take a mini-bus (No. 3 ) from IFC , to Po Shan Road, drop off at the terminal and walk to the end of Po Shan Road, there a an unofficial stairs up to a trail and walk to the left until u can a obvious rock stream.

  40. Hi

    I am visiting Hong Kong from 17.5 – 22.5 2016. I would love to do some climbing but I need a 60-70 Meter Rope. Can you lend me yours? Of corse I will take care of it and handle it back in a proper and good condition.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

      • Hello Kathy;
        It will be with pleasure.
        I’m leaving Laos tomorrow and will be in Hong Kong at night.
        I don’t usually use whatsapp.
        I installed it and made a test, but it did not work; I will try again.

  44. Hi everybody,
    I’m looking for a partner/group to go climbing with any day from April 29 to May 3. Preferably single-pitch sport routes or bouldering. It’d be nice to visit Tung Lung but anywhere with fun climbing is fine by me. I’ll bring a harness, belay, and snacks.

    I generally do more bouldering than sport climbing, but I’m comfortable on lead and happy to belay. Let me know if you’re interested. Thanks!
