Crag features

Cape Collinson features approximately 55 sport routes distributed over 3 sectors. The crag is located south east of Chai Wan on Hong Kong Island. The cliffs face a variety of directions therefore it is possible to remain in the sun or the shade throughout the day.

Approach notes

Travelling to the area is very easy. Take the MTR Island line to Chai Wan station then take a taxi to the Cape Collinson Correctional Institution. Note: there are 2 correctional institutions, if asked; it is the male correctional facility. Ensure that the taxi driver understands that it is Cape Collinson Road (lower cemetery for those that speak Cantonese) that you require otherwise you may end up travelling towards Shek O! From Chai Wan MTR it takes approximately 10 minutes to reach the car park in the image below. This car park is almost at the end of Cape Collinson Road.

Continue down the road from the drop off point until a small masonry retaining wall is present on your right side and some railings to you left, as shown in the image right to the right. Climb over the railings and follow a vague trail down slope, with a short section using some fixed line to access a more prominent trail below.

There are two bunkers at the base of the approach path. When facing out to sea, Bunker Wall is immediately to your left and beyond that, the main cliff of The Beach. To your right and accessed down past the lower bunker, is the sheltered multi pitch area of The Zawn.
