The following PDF downloads are basic guides for a number of the climbing areas in Hong Kong. The guides are all free to download, print and use but please note that their content is copyrighted so they should not be reproduced or distributed for any commercial purposes. The format of the guides is A5 size, so for best results simply print in booklet style in Acrobat and then staple along the spine. Quick. Cheap. Easy.

The guides are essentially a snapshot of the website content, which is a live document on the current known climbing areas in Hong Kong. As such, please feel free to comment below on any typo’s found, disagreements on grades given, improvements in descriptions etc.  You’re also invited to send in any new photos to: for our consideration.

Many people have contributed these guides in some way, shape or form including (amongst others): Martin Lancaster (the original keeper of the knowledge before came into existence); Danny Ng, Rocky Lok, Geoff Breach, Francis Haden, Gianfranco Bigazzi, Alberto Cipriani, Brian Boyd, Royce Ferguson, Karen Chan, Jon Butters, Nick Smith, Keith Hazelaar, Dennis Hodgson, Matt Tranter, and many more.

If you find the guides useful, be sure to buy these guys a beer next time you see them.
