The grades and the number of routes are from the 92/93 guidebook. All of the routes, up to 20 of them, have been bolted since from F5+ to F8a. The granite is very rough but very clean as the crag faces the sun all day, especially winter months! It's only 10 mins from public transport. Worth stopping by to visit when you're in Hong Kong. Excellent views of Hong Kong, too.|
