Description 

A traditional crag situated in a beautiful spot above Deep Water and Repulse Bay. Home to some excellent (although short, even for Hong Kong standards) trad routes. The rock is high quality granite, and luckily is much finer grained than the rest of HK, which makes the jamming more pleasant.

Getting There 

Easiest approach is via Taxi, tell them Black's Link or minibus number 5 from Causeway Bay, you can pick up outside SOGO on Lockhart Rd. Expect 45 minutes or so with traffic.

I'll admit it, I have a fetish for roof cracks, and when I saw this route I got real excited. Starting from a ledge directly underneath the nose of Black's Link climb directly out the perfect hands crack, with the crux coming pulling the lip and transitioning your feet on top of the roof. A bit intimidating but once you pull on it is all fun. Long reaches between good jams underneath the roof. Although probably only about 6 moves, this route is intense....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
