Hong Kong Bouldering (Second Edition)
The updated authoritative guide to bouldering in Hong Kong, containing detailed descriptions and topo’s for more than 1,300 bolder problems scattered across more than thirty different sectors.
The book has a retail cost of HK$300 and will be available from the outlets linked below from late-August 2021. If you can’t get to any of these for whatever reason, online orders can also be arranged (inclusive of postage and packaging) at the approximate costs indicated below by emailing email@example.com to confirm availability and costs:
|Shipping to||Hong Kong||Macau;|
|Norther China; |
Australia & NZ
To avoid shipping costs, direct collection can also be arranged from the Mid-Levels, Hong Kong Island (evenings) or Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong (weekdays, office hours). As above, e mail for details if this is preferred.
Note: this was a relatively small print run of less than 1,000 copies of the guidebook as I simply don’t have the room to store lots of copies in a small flat, or the cash to blow on buying storage space elsewhere. The end result of this is that the guide could be out of stock relatively quick and a second print run won’t be planned until there’s enough confirmed demand to cover all the costs etc. In other words, if you want a copy, buy one relatively quickly to avoid disappointment …
