DescriptionA short crag (10-15 meters at most) in an easily accessible location. Vertical to slightly off vertical climbing on thin edges and pockets. The rock is volcanic but of a slightly different character than the other volcanic locations in Hong Kong.
A number of new routes were recently developed on the left side of the crag, most of which are at a lower grade than the previous routes. Very easy access and a mix of grades will make this a popular area. Link to a .pdf guide for the area:

Getting ThereGreen minibus 25 from Causeway Bay, or taxi from Tin Hau MTR. Go to the end of Braemar Hill Road. From the end of the road, take the steps down the drainage and cross a small stream to a dirt path. As you walk uphill on orange color dirt, look for a concrete slab in the middle of the trail. At this point look turn right. Follow the trail with a fixed handline or two to the crag.
