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 three separate walls. The upper headwall -- presently covered in red and pink paint -- has two short routes. The main wall below is the primary attraction. The Lost World has a number of high quality routes, and has more friction moves than the main wall.

Gets sun from mid-morning through the end of the day. Minimal shade at the base, making this area best saved for winter months.
Climbing out at the end of the day.

Spectacular views of Victoria Harbor

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 to a bolted anchor with chains.  A 60 meter rope will just reach to the ledge on the left side of the cliff.  There is an additional rap station directly below (not visible from above), and another station down and left when looking out from the cliff.  That anchor marks the top of Special Forces, and a 60 meter rope will just reach the ground.
