Tyrolean Traverse at Sea Gully, Tung Lung Chau, Hong Kong © StuartM

Crag features

Steep face climbing on compact, often featureless, walls and soaring aretes. The rubble on the gully floor gives the crag a slight quarry like feel, however, this does nothing to detract from the stunning setting of sea cliff routes a long way above the floor.

Its worth noting that even on days when Technical Wall is crammed with people, Sea Gully will still almost certainly be deserted.

If you want to get to the island on weekdays, or when ferries aren't running, a Sampan (for up to 4 people) can usually be rented from the typhoon shelter just by showing up and haggling with the boat operator. A speed boat (with capacity for 8 people) can be arranged by calling Mr Cheng at: 9080 3754.

Upon arrival at the island follow the obvious concrete path, signposted towards Tung Lung Fort. Continue along the path, past the Holiday Store (which provides free topo's, strong coffee and excellent dumplings), to a camping ground. From the camping ground follow a dirt path a short way up the hillside before taking another path through some bushes, to the left, and heading down into the sea gully itself.
