Description

Nice slab granite climbing.

Approach

The easiest approach to the crag is to head up to Wong Nai Chung Gap/黃泥涌峽 (well served by either taxi or bus 6 from Central, 76 or Green Minibus 5 from Causeway Bay). From there go along Blacks Link to the end of the road. Follow the concrete trail around the hillside, beneath some engineered slopes. At the far end of the slopes a drainage channel cuts back up the hill. Jump over the fence at the marker BL63. Follow this to the top of the slope and then continue up the eroded ground above. A dirt trail leads from this to the base of the crag.

Start down to the left of My Cat’s Blacker than Yours. Climb a short crack to the first bolt and step left onto a small ledge. Climb directly up the rib above and into a rest below the distinct, slanted roof. Force the groove beneath the roof to pull over onto the slab above. Technical moves lead up the wall and to easier ground.

Start beneath a quartz infused groove. Step off the ground and at the second bolt; avoid poor rock on the left by moving right to gain good holds. Reach up to clip the third bolt, then step back left to a good jug in the small groove. Follow the groove, trending right to a lower off beneath the roof.

The hardest climb on the crag and a particularly difficult start and finish. Start by a tree, slightly up slope from a rock flake at the base of the wall. Step onto the wall and gingerly step right below the first bolt. Precarious, hard moves past the second bolt gain a crucial finger pocket for the right hand above. Reach left, and haul up onto the obvious undercut flake then force the groove above on improving holds to a rest next to a horizontal break. Stretch left across the wall to gain a good side hold and join the finish of The Missing Link.

Climb the wall directly above the penultimate bolt to some slopy holds, without following holds left to The Missing Link.

Same anchor as Love thy Link.

Follow Side Link to the roof.
