Chung Hom Kok Boulders

General

A series of coastal granite boulders in a fine setting. The rock has largely been smoothed by waves meaning it’s quite kind on the skin, which is rare for a Hong Kong Granite. Most landings are reasonable but spotters and mats are still recommended.

Approach

From Exchange Square, Central, take either the No. 63 or No. 262 bus to Chung Hom Kok. Stay on the bus through the village and alight at a small roundabout.

ChungHomKok Bouldering Areas

There are two possible approaches from here depending on which area you are going to:

Beach Boulders: Behind the bus stop, on the left of the roundabout, is a slightly overgrown footpath. Follow this down to a small beach and the scramble rightwards around the coastline. A degree of caution is required for this approach as most of the coastline is formed of slabs dipping into the sea. If no security guard is present at the Private Road an easier approach along this, and then down a slope just beyond the Satellite Station, is possible.

Coastline Crags: From the roundabout continue along Chung Hom Kok Road to its end, 25 minutes walk. Follow the steps at the end of the road down to the coastline and make a somewhat airy scramble leftwards to your chosen area (the easiest line is higher up just in the grass).

Hillside Boulders: From the roundabout continue along Chung Hom Kok Road until you get to a small roadside crag with a dozen or so easy bolted climbs on it. Scramble up a trail on the left side of the crag and follow this up the hillside to reach the boulders.

FYI The major hold on the V0 (1) on the pier boulders has been broken off the wall after a bit of a wrestle from a friend.
