Soho crag is located right above the heart of Hong Kong, Central District. Access is relatively easy, grades are easy to moderate and the route quality is high. The crag can be approached from either the end of Po Shan Road or Old Peak Road.
From Po Shan Road: Climb up the concrete maintenance staircase to the top of the slope at the end of the road. From the top of the staircase follow an older set of stairs a meter or two higher up until you reach an old, slightly overgrown footpath. Turn left and follow this for 10 minutes until you reach a drainage line with a yellow tag hanging from a tree above it and the word 'soho' painted faintly on a boulder.
From Peak Road: From the rest area at the end of the road follow the footpath rightwards as it contours the hillside. After 5 minutes or so, just after crossing some granite slabs, the path climbs steeply up a narrow flight of stairs before continuing around the hillside to reach the same drainage channel described above.
Follow the drainage channel upstream for 5 minutes until you reach the base of a small cliff. Traverse right along the base of this (fixed rope in place) until you reach the bottom of a fixed line. The fixed line leads approximately 30m up a steep slab to the base of the crag, where a limited amount of space is available for stashing rucksacks etc. whilst you climb
Access Description 2: Take a taxi to 23 Old Peak Road. Follow the flat walking path past the small pagoda, contouring around the hill through jungle. After about 10 minutes you'll reach stone steps leading up the hill. Follow these and then fixed ropes to reach Soho Crag.
