We have just added a full guide to Hong Kong to Rockfax Digital. This fascinating destination has a huge variety of sport climbing on offer from big mountain crags, to seaside zawns; from delicate granite slabs to fierce overhanging caves.
The environment is a bustling city sitting amongst spectacular peaks and rocky coastlines. Climbing can be found on crags in an urban backdrop within minutes of the local bus or metro stop but also on remote islands which are only reached by ferry.
To access the guide for free just go to the app store, download Rockfax Digital and sign in.
The project is a collaboration between Rockfax and Francis Haden of Climbing Bolt Supplies. Francis has produced a great printed book to the sport climbing on the island which we have now added to Rockfax Digital. Francis is also a major developer of climbing in the area having added hundreds of routes himself working with other local climbers.
The Rockfax Digital package will be available for free until the end of December for anyone with Rockfax Digital installed and subsequently as an ongoing part of our coverage. We are working with Francis on sustainable documentation for the climbing and hope to add an update in the future in conjunction with a new book.
As with our work with the SMC in Scotland, this is a third party guidebook producer who has collaborated with us to add their information to Rockfax Digital. This means that in some places it looks a little different from the usual Rockfax coverage.
