Description

Prominent slab overlooking the eastern side of Kowloon. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.11, with most climbs 5.9 or 5.10. Excellent granite face and friction climbing in a scenic setting. Devil's Peak is a rap-in-climb out venue, with two separate walls. The upper headwall -- presently covered in red and pink paint -- has two short routes. The main wall below is the primary attraction.

Gets sun from mid-morning through the end of the day. No shade at the base, making this area best saved for winter months.


Getting There

Exit A2 from the Yau Tong MTR, walk east and take your first left. At the sign for the Chinese Cemetery, head right up the hill for about ten minutes. Cross the street at the sign for the Wilson Trail. Take the left trail, and follow the steps for another ten minutes to the top of the slab. There is a rap anchor just below the railing, and a descent scramble to the left. Total approach time from the MTR to the rap anchor is 25 minutes or so. One short rappel puts you at the base of the headwall. Walk down a short path and then scramble to the top of the slabs. It is very exposed getting to the rap anchors! The rap anchor just below a single bolt will take you past Special Forces; a single 60 meter rope will just reach the ground. There is another rap station to your right (when facing out), which will take you the base of the easier routes on the left side.
