The Fury Wall

Sustained climbs on the steep compact wall right of The Depot provides some of the best routes at Ap Lei Chau.

Fury Wall-01

1 – Collision Course F6b+, 12m, 5 bolts **
FA: Francis Haden, Donna Kwok 23/08/2015

2 – Jumping Judy F6b+ **
The steep left arete of the wall yields to a determined approach, with big powerful pulls between positive holds.

3 – Surf to Sun F6b+ ** Pitch 1: F5, 15m, 8 bolts; Pitch 2: F6b+, 15m, 9 bolts
FA: Francis Haden, Donna Kwok 22/11/2015
A fun outing taking the obvious left-to-right trending ramp, concluding with an exposed traverse beneath the roof that is decidedly easier if you are short. Take note that this climb crosses all the other Fury Wall routes so avoid choosing this during busy times!

4 – Simple Face F6c+ **
A crimpy technical outing up the left side of the main Fury wall. The difficulties may be short lived, but they’re still difficult… Sadly this route often suffers from seepage issues.
FA: Francis Haden, Ray Lee (2015)

5 – One Ice Cream away from Happiness F6c+ **
A pleasant route up the left side of the main portion of Fury Wall. Good holds lead to a more committing crux at mid-height, beyond which further positive ledges and side pulls will bring the top (provided the pump doesn’t set in…)

6 – The Fury F7a ***
A crag test piece that forces a sustained line up the centre of the wall. Tricky to on-sight but relatively straight forward and soft for the grade once you know the modes. Follow a line of small ledges and edges up the middle of the wall until you reach a series of small overlaps at the last bolt. General consensus seems to be reaching out left to good side pulls at this point in order to get to the capping roof above and the lower off.

6a – The Fury (extension) F7a **
Instead of clipping the anchor, traverse right underneath the roof (bolt) until it is possible to pull through this and crank up to a good jug the top.

7 – Lifetime Piling Up F7a (Much harder since the loss of the block at the bottom) *
Originally climbed starting off a large block in the corner, which washed out in 2018. The start is now much much harder than F7a+ (probably about V6/7 to get to ledges). For F7a, start from a couple of good edges in the break just above the second bolt. From the ledge climb the face an Arete till they run out and a few crimpy moves bring the roof. Crank through this, trending left slightly, to gain the top of the wall and the lower off.

8 – Direct Action F6b+ *
A short technical and punchy little line up the clean corner on the right side of The Fury Wall. Intricate moves up the corner leads to the slopey shelf and (with the help of a little tree) the lower off
