Description

Single pitch sport climbs on solid volcanic rock in a highly sociable setting make Technical Wall by far Hong Kongs most popular crag. Its worth noting that Technical Wall can get very busy on Sundays and Public Holidays and crowds in excess of 50 people at the wall have been seen.

36 Sport Routes between 10m and 20m in length Grades from F4+ to F8a+. 20 minute easy approach walk from ferry pier. Sunny aspect in the morning and pleasant sea breeze on hot days.

Access issues inherited from Tung Lung Chau

A ferry runs to Tung Lung Chau from Sai Wan Ho typhoon shelter (exit A1 from Sai Wan Ho MTR Station and walk rightwards to the coastline) on weekends and most Public Holidays.

A ferry also runs from the pier at Sam Ka Tsuen, Lei Yue Mun (approach by taxi from Lam Tin MTR Station).

Weekday access: Sampans (for up to 4 people) can usually be rented from the typhoon shelter at Sai Wan Ho by just showing up and haggling with the boat operator. A speed boat (with capacity for 10 people) can be arranged by calling Mr Cheng at: 9080 3754.
