LAND: WeekEND Climb @ Beacon Hill + Dim Sum Lunch

  • May 19, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Weather permitting, I would like to see if we can pull off an outdoor climb tomorrow.

I'll post an update at 7am. Check in before heading out the door.

 

▀ $50 cash, exact change please. Harnesses, ropes, helmets provided. No climbing shoes.

▀ If you click "Attending", please show up!

▀ Let's have dim sum lunch together! Can't make the climb but join for lunch? Sure! 1:30pm at Yau Yat Chuen Garden City Club: http://goo.gl/maps/UqLXs

=====================================================

▀ Open to all levels from beginners to seasoned climbers alike.

1). Sunglasses, long sleeve shirts, umbrella etc. Insect repellent is a MUST =)

2). Bring food; bread, chocolates, candy for an energy boost. 2 liters of water as we're in the wild, no shops to buy drinks from.

3). Note that there's also no toilets at the venue, if you have to go, it will have to be in the bushes. Bring an umbrella to shield yourself. Tissue paper, wet wipes, a plastic bag to store trash etc.

4). Bring your own helmets if you have them. Camera for a great elevated view of Kowloon.

5). It is a short but very steep hike to the climbing spot, so DO NOT wear slippers / flip flops, low traction shoes. Hiking boots / sneakers are a good idea. You will need to use both your hands for balance and to pull yourself up ... so make sure everything you have can be packed into your backpack & your hands are free.

6). Pls PRINT out the map and Chinese directions. If you don't, you will get lost.

◎ Directions:

1) Kowloon Tong MTR Station, go to Festival Walk (MTR exit "C")

2) 8:15 Meet at the taxi stand by the Franc Franc store (there are two taxi stands, make sure you meet at the right one).

3) Gather yourselves in groups of 4 - 5 and share a cab. Show this to the cab driver.

Chinese Directions for taxi driver: 龍翔道東行,見「豐力樓」(或「水務署機電工場」) 路牌轉左再轉左

◎ Maps:

Directions Google Map:http://tiny.cc/BH-SV

From Lung Cheung Road, go east, turn left at "Green Garden" sign, then turn left again into a small road by the "Water Supply Department". Go up a winding road until you see a gazebo on your left. The trail up to the crag is on the right side of the road. Follow along the fence, look out for trail markers (tape and ribbons) up to the crag.
