Temple Crag

Climbs 22 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 135m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Non-strenuous climbing, on high friction rock, with fantastic open views of the Lantau Hills, Cheung Sha and Pui O beaches and the Islands of the South China Sea make the up hill approach worthwhile. Taken from Hong Kong Climbing - The crag faces west and dries very quickly after rain but it can get hot on windless mid summer afternoons.

The two large, easily seen, buttresses on the hillside south of Pui O village are separated by a jungle gully (which is best avoided). Most climbs are on the left buttress (looking from the sea).


French grading is used for the bolted climbs and English grades for routes with traditional protection.

Approach notes
Check out Hong Kong Climbing website.

Extremely hot in summer if there is no breeze. Lots of good little shops in Pui O and Ham Tin to buy drinks etc.
