About Black Crag:

Hong Kong's most recently developed sport climbing area. Easy access, spectacular views, and a wealth of moderate climbs. So, expect the area to be crowded. The cliff is south facing. Most routes are in all day sun, with shaded belays. The routes are on high quality granite. Expect less than vertical face climbing, with the occasional friction slab or roof interspersed. As this is a new area, there is still quite a bit of loose rock, including football to basketball sized boulders, on several routes.

Directions: Black Crag, and the companion Blacks Link wall, are found on the south side of Mount Nicholson. You can take bus 6 or 66 from Admiralty (Pacific Place 3), and then walk from the HK tennis center. Or, taxi to Blacks Link Road and walk to the end, continue on the pedestrian road. Turn right at culvert #63. A short trail leads to a handline, and the first wall is to the left of the handline. Follow the trail up and right to the second wall. A roped traverse to the left takes you to the main wall. Total approach time is about ten minutes to the main wall.
