LAND: Public Holiday Climb @ Beacon Hill

  • May 1, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Another holiday climb, this time Beacon Hill!!!  We haven't been there in a while (and we're obviously excited about it ;) ).

Whether this event happens depends on the weather--we'll update everyone on the event wall as we get closer to the day.

▀ Pay $50 cash in person. Harnesses, ropes, helmets provided. Please bring exact change.

▀ If you click "Attending", please show up!  These outdoor climbs are very popular--please don't deprive someone else of the chance to climb!

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

http://www.hongkongclimbing.com/guides/beac...

▀ The event, as always is 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

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. Walk up until you find a fence, then follow it up to the crag.

    April 30, 2013

    • Margaret M.

      Sure! As long as you can get to the climbing area on your own. :)

    Heavy rain now ... Is there still a hope for the rock to be dry by tmw morning ( and the event maintained ?) Thanks

    April 30, 2013

    • Margaret M.

      If it stops raining before midnight-ish, the rock might dry out overnight. If it rains through the night, we'll have to cancel. Unfortunately. :(

    Umm stupid question. Is it possible to just come to watch? My friend is interested in checking out this climbing business and since im only on the waiting list myself, can we just come watch and socialize haha? Well, i will climb if get bumped up but my friend just wants to watch.

    April 29, 2013

    • Margaret M.

      Hi B, if you make it onto the attending list, please go ahead and bring your friend. If not, it would probably be better not to join us this time--we'll be a pretty big group, and there's not a lot of extra space along the wall when we have 20+ people up there, unfortunately. I hope you make it onto the list!
