    Climbing in and around Hong Kong

    Hi All, i am looking to make a move to Hong Kong in the near future. Being a rock climber / mountaineer from Cape Town (where Table Mountain is behind my house!) the availability of decent rock is not an issue. I have found a few threads on the web regarding climbing in and around Hong Kong; are there any members who climb and who can give me a "run down" on the climbing scene in the area?

    This is the definitive site for climbing in HK:

    Hong Kong Climbing

    In a nutshell, there is a fair amount of climbing in with easy access. They tend to be heavily bolted sport routes rather than trad. Mostly single pitch, with multipitch routes on Lion Rock/Kowloon Peak.

    There's also relatively easy access to Yangshou, Krabi and Halong Bay.

    Hey, going to HK in Octerober. Will you be still there then?
    I'm a German girl doing rock climbing at "Fränkische Schweiz" in Germany. Would like to do rock climbing in HK aswell.

    Are there Homepages about the climbing routes?
