Description

The Yellow Wall and Hopeless Buttress make up part of the longest continuous bit of stone up Kowloon Peak. The climbing here has a distinct mountain feel to it, compared to the craggy feel of most other climbs in Hong Kong. Of not is one of the longest trad lines in Hong Kong: Sunset Crack; a fine, moderate route of about 100m (330') in length. With views of the highrises of eastern Kowloon, Victoria Harbor, and Central/TST off in the distance, this area provides a very unique combination of long climbs in a decidedly urban setting.

Getting There

From www.hongkongclimbing.com: To get to Kowloon Peak’s Hopeless Buttress and Yellow Wall start at No.1 Fei Ngo Shan Road and walk a short way up the drive way (private road) until an obvious small track starts leading up the hillside to the right. Follow this up the hill, going to the left when the track splits, roughly level with the base of the crag. Approach time approx. 30-45 minutes.
