More info about Rock Climbing in Hong Kong:

Hong Kong is composed of the main island as well as part of a peninsula that pokes out from the Chinese mainland. The main island is where most of the rock climbing in the semi-autonomous Chinese city takes place. The central crag of the main island is among the most popular rock climbing destinations in Hong Kong. Here, there are routes perfectly suited for all levels of climbers from beginners to experts, and the views out over the city and toward Victoria harbour are absolutely stunning. On the southeastern corner of the main island is Shek O, which boasts plenty of great sport routes that are perfect beginners. Hone your sport climbing skills on immaculate granite slabs and enjoy great views out into the sea en route. Intermediate climbers, meanwhile, can challenge their skills on the 495-meter (1,620-foot) lion rock, also on the main island. Temple Crag, on Lantau Island, and Black Crag, on the southside of hte main island, are also worthwhile challenges for intermediate climbers
