The School Yard – A New Hong Kong Crag

Several days of bush clearing and bolting have resulted in an easily accessible beginner level climbing area located adjacent to the well established Monkey Buttress on Hong Kong Island.

8 Routes up to 15m high were equipped using Bolt Products A4 glue-in bolts and Hilti RE500 epoxy.

Excellent rock quality, a sub 5 minute approach and appropriately geared routes make this an ideal venue for teaching new comers to the sport. A topo can be downloaded under the Guide Downloads page.

Thanks to Koh Ting Yi for partnering up on the first ascents.
