Crag features

Short, easily accesible sport routes on top quality, rough as it comes, granite make this crag almost as popular as Technical Wall, Tung Lung Chau.

Approach notes

Take the MTR to Shep Kip Mei Station. From there take a taxi through Tai Wo Ping and onto Lung Cheung Road, heading east. Shortly after joining Lung Cheung Road a WSD access road breaks off to the right. Follow this up the hill until a gate and service reservoir are reached. To the right of the reservoir a small track leads up the hill to the crag.

Walking time: 10mins

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.
