Crag features

Dominating the skyline over Kowloon is Lion Rock so called because when viewed from certain angles the profile of the crag resembles that of a Lion iand probably Hong Kong’s best ‘mountain crag’. 

Approach notes

From Kowloon Side:

Take the MTR to Lok Fu Station and get a taxi to Lion Rock Country Park (Sze Tse San). Follow the road to the right of the park entrance gates for about 30m before heading up the hill on a well signposted footpath. Upon reaching a small shelter on the ridgeline take the upper right hand path (signposted to Lion Rock) and continue upwards. When approximately level with the toe of the crag a small dirt path breaks off right from the main track (at a small clearing in the footpath) and leads to the foot of the cliff. 

Walking time: 60mins

From Sha Tin Side:

Take the MTR to Sha Tin Station and get a taxi to Mong Fu Shek BBQ. From here follow the obvious footpath up the hill towards the crag. From the shelter follow the left hand path up the ridge and approach as for Kowloon side. 

Walking time: 60mins

Restricted Access

All bolts on the East Face and the final pitch of Gweilo were chopped during protest banner removal in 2020. 

Just uploaded some photos of the Hong Kong Lion Rock. Hopefully the Llyn Padarn photos will be removed...
