Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Q: I am an experienced climber. Is this experience for me?
A: Yes! The climbing sites offer a variety of routes for all levels of climbers, from beginner to advanced. You can ask to climb more technical routes to practice advanced techniques.

Q: When is the best time to go climbing outdoors?
A: While most of the sites can be climbed year-round, the months between October and January, when temperatures and humidity are moderate, are considered the most comfortable period to climb in Hong Kong.

Q: What is the difference between real rock and artificial indoor rock climbing?
A: There is a world of difference between the two. For one, hand holds and foot holds on real rock are not clearly defined. You will need to be observant for natural features and cracks in the rock to use. The hand holds you find may be smaller and in more irregular shapes. The weather will also have an impact on the conditions of the climb.

But if you choose to weather those difficulties, you will be rewarded with beautiful views and an unparalleled sense of achievement when you finally stand atop the conquered rock!

We learnt the basics in the morning and practiced with a few shorter climbs before climbing all the way to the top and abseiling down. Great views over Hong Kong during dusk. A great day out!

Despite being the hottest day in the past 5 decades (!!!), it was an AWESOME experience which we thoroughly enjoyed! KC the instructor was very attentive, accommodating and competent. He guided us through challenging climbs and we exceeded our own expectations - thank you KC! We will be back for sure, perhaps on a cooler day. :)

Fantastic day all round. The instructor (KC) was very friendly, easy-going and was clearly an expert in his field. The day was completely ours so we could spend as much or as little time as we wanted - The flexibility provided was great. The cliffs were of varying degrees of difficulty too so there's a challenge for everyone. Would highly recommend.

Brandon and I had a really wonderful day with KC. The entire experience from the pick up to the drop off was extremely well planned out by our guide KC. While rock climbing can seem quite dangerous, I can ensure you that KC is extremely good at what he does and makes you feel safe the entire time. He has that really great combination of being motivational enough to make sure you challenge yourself without pushing you too far. This is absolutely something we will do again!! A wonderful new way to see Hong Kong!

My husband and I had the most wonderful experience climbing on the island of Tung Lung with our instructor KC.

KC was extremely attentive to detail and taught us how to put on our equipment, tie our climbing ropes and ensure each others safety. We felt completely safe during the entire experience, even though it can be a little scary to climb 10 meters in the air!

KC had brought climbing shoes for both of us which made it a lot easier to climb on the super steep cliffs facing the ocean (very beautiful spot, btw!). We are both amazed that we managed to climb the cliff-sides without any help and abseil from a 15-20 meter high cliff-side. All in one day.

We were able to do everything at our own pace and KC was a great teacher.

We would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who likes a fun outdoors challenge.

This was a great experience! We have a little experience already with indoor climbing (at V1/V2) but were nervous to climb outdoors. KC was very helpful in giving advice, making sure we were safe the whole time, and planning fun routes. Although the day was a scorcher, Cape Colinson was beautiful and we finished the day feeling like we learned a lot. Thanks to KC!

We had a great day. KC brought us to a really fantastic location, and we had plenty of time to learn climbing. It was challenging, but also done safely and conscientiously. Highly recommended.

KC was an excellent instructor. He was very patient and informative. Never did I question his ability and felt very safe throughout the experience. It was our first outdoor rock climbing experience and definitely won't be our last.

We picked the Cape Collision destination due to it being on Hong Kong Island. We met at 9:45am and arrived at Cape Collision by 10:30am (Short taxi ride + short hike).

This was an off the grid experience so be prepared for no bathrooms and wilderness. Sunscreen, food and lots of water (we brought 2 big bottles (1.5L each) of water along with a bottle of pocari and we still ran out). It was unfortunate that we picked the hottest day of 2015 to do this (36.5 degrees according to HK Obs.). It was physically challenging and strenuous but well worth the experience.

Locations are public areas so expect other climbing enthusiast in the area. My advice would be to be aware of other climbers and to pay attention to falling debris..

Great experience!

It's hard to believe that I started out the day knowing absolutely nothing about rock climbing, and at the end, I was tying double figure 8 knots (just so you know, I'm a butterfingers!), climbing and belaying with confidence! KC, our instructor, was very patient, supportive and sure, which made me feel 100% safe the whole time. We went to Beacon Hill, which is a magnificent place to climb with beautiful views of Hong Kong, especially when you make it to the top - which you will!

I bought the voucher as a gift and we had an amazing time climbing Beacon Hill. Both of us had some experience as indoor climbers but were looking to develop more outdoor skills. KC showed us how to lead climb some challenging routes and was extremely helpful with mapping out the Crux of some routes. He let us set the pace of our climbing but he also made sure we were safe. It was a great day out and a one of kind HK experience.

Rock Climbing in Hong Kong is amazing. You get to see some beautiful landscape. The instructor, KC, is patient and experienced, you always feel safe with him but at the same time he is able to choose fun rock climbing routes for you. The climbing itself is a real full-body workout and you'll be sore all over the next day, but it's definitely worth it!

I’ve been to the Beacon Hill and Cape Collinson site and both location have routes suitable for beginners like me. With enough work out and challenge to make you feel absolutely great about yourself once you had completed a line. Apart from climbing, you will also find beautiful scenery your wouldn't expect to see in a concrete jungle like Hong Kong.
Coach KC is very experienced. With his expertise, patience and guidance, I had a wonderful time climbing and cannot wait for the next trip! Remember to bring enough water for drinking and washing. Another tip for the ladies, bring along an umbrella to cover yourself when nature calls :P

第一次嘗試戶外攀石運動十分緊張, 但 KC 教練逐步解釋整個攀石程序並讓我們逐一嘗試。由基本技巧開始,先在較矮的山坡嘗試練習,過程中 KC 會仔細地教授每一個攀石要注意的細節,包括綁繩結,使用BELAYING DEVICE,學習不同的 COMMAND 等等。亦會學到不同角色 (BELAYER & CLIMBER) 的重要性,朋友間互相合作互相信任完成攀登 :)

過程絕對不容易,但到達頂峰時能夠欣賞到九龍全景時,的確是一份大大的滿足感!很高興自己能夠完成攀登山頂的挑戰! 多謝 KC 全程指導,鼓勵及協助! 讓我們可以安心又安全地攀登上頂峰 :D
