The Far Side

General

The Far Side is a small face located on the other side of the headland bounding Sea Gully, facing back towards Tech Wall. The crag contains a handful of seldom climbed routes bolted in the mid-to-late 90’s, despite their good quality.

Routes

The routes are access by following the same trail to Sea Gully, but breaking left once on the headland instead of down and right into the Gully. Access is by abseil to a small ledge at the base of the routes.

Sea Gully5-01

1) Take a Ride – F6a
Approach by scrambling left around the headland to the left wall of the cave entrance. Climb the loose white corner before moving right onto the orange headwall. Continue to anchors on the terrace above.
F.A. Danny Ng (2001)

2) Ah Lun Central – F6a+
A good continuation pitch from the anchors at the end of Daniels Dilemma. Climb the central pillar, between the two caves.
F.A. Ah Lun (1993)

3) Dave’s Route ** F7a
Abseil 45m down the steep left (looking at it) side of the wall right of the cave to a semi hanging belay. From the belay climb up and left onto the very steep wall above. Continue up this. After the first few moves, could potentially offer one of HK’s best deep water solo lines?
F.A. Dave Hessledon (1995)

4) Whistle in the Wind * F7a
An alternative start to Daves Route that traverses in from the right, avoiding the hanging belay but adding considerable rope drag.
F.A. Danny Ng (2001)

5) Jacky Left – F6a
Climb the bolted line just left of the middle of the wall
F.A. Jacky Tang (1995)

6) Jacky Right * F6b
The bolted line just right of the middle of the wall.
F.A. Jacky Tang (1995)

7) Wheel Within a Wheel – F6a+
A relatively short climb near the right hand end of the wall.
F.A. Danny Ng (2001)

8) My Ideal * F6a
The final climb up the wall gives an enjoyable pitch that is over all too soon.
F.A. Danny Ng (2001)
