Rock climbing is a fun, intelligent and cool sport 🙂

The course described in the external link is hosted by the Hong Kong Mountaineering Training Centre. It’s a all-day class that teaches you all the basics for HK$350. At the end of the day, you will receive a Level 1 certificate from China Hong Kong Mountaineering and Climbing Union.

The only one on HK island seems to be the Da Verm Gym in Sheung Wan, where you can go straight to climbing for a membership fee (HKD$100) and a day-pass (HKD$120). Check it out at: https://www.facebook.com/davermgym 

You will see that hongkongclimbing.com also offers a wealth of information on climbing real rocks in the wild.

Some suggestions from a climber:

“The good things about rock climbing is you will get very very strong forearms and you can think fast. The bad thing is the skin on all your finger-tips will, after long time practice, become very rough, like a file (like sand paper rough).”
