I am an Aussie girl just arrived in Hong Kong and will be working here for 4 months. Before I left Oz I was newly introduced to the (exceedingly fun) sport of climbing, and rather than waste away whilst I am here, I am looking for an indoor climbing pal or gal, and maybe even someone to take me under their wing outdoors :wink: . That, or even find some kindred spirits on this rather crowded island...

Watch out for the virus thing SARS over there, eh?

Hope you find some partners and have a great time.

Good climbing in Hong Kong

I will go outdoor every weekend but it seems raining these days in HK.

If you want to climb in artificail wall , you are required to have a test/accessment in HKMU/SCAHK/YMCA.

So indoor bouldering gym is better for you. It charge $25-30 without any requirement.

email me at windclimb@hotmial.com if you can't find a partner.

Detailed info can be found here :

My husband and I are moving to HK soon, but not that soon (you'll probably be long gone by the time we get there). For a small, urbanized area, there's a suprising amount of fun climbing around HK (and of course not too far away: yangshuo, thailand, etc.).

The one thing I wish is that they had more indoor gyms there -- they've got some great looking ourdoor artificial walls, but rain and hot, humid weather probably affects how often you can play on plastic (which I have to admit, I do like to do . . . I never grew out of my fondness for the school yard jungle gym).

Hope you get to do lots of climbing and enjoy your time there! :D

Oh yeah, I second the sentiment about wearing a mask in crowded places -- it's funny looking but a lot less funny than catching SARS! :!: :!:
