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).

Approach notes

Catch the ferry from Central, Pier 7, to Mui Wo (Silvermine Bay) on Lantau Island. From the bus station outside the ferry pier either take the bus Pui O Village (as far as you can get on bus) or catch a taxi. In Pui O take the left turn onto Chi Ma Wan Road, continuing through Ham Tin and along the road some 700m further to the crest of the hill (au), Shap Leung Kau Tsuen. On the left is a concrete driveway leading to houses and on the right is a Country Park sign.
