Warning:  

This is a 3-boot hike and is intended for seasoned hikers as it involves climbing up and down the narrow and uneven ridges of Sharp Peak.  The area is very exposed and subjected to the strong easterly wind.  You should have a good sense of balance and a sturdy pace to brave the relentless push of the wind.  You are advised to bring a pair of gloves and wear hiking shoes with good traction for this hike.

Remember to bring all the usual gear, in particular sufficient water, hiking shoes with good traction, sun block, a hat, a pair of glove, head-lamps and a warm jacket / wind breaker.  The walk will be cancelled if it is raining or threatening to rain (thunderstorm warning).  If in doubt on the morning of the walk, call the hot line 8209-0517.  Please don't be late.
