FOR HIGH WALL:
From Hillview MRT Station Exit A, walk straight forward past the bus stop till you see a intersection. Do not cross it, just follow the same pavement, turn right and walk straight ahead. Keep walking past another bus stop and till you reach a yellow coloured gate. Turn right into it and go straight ahead all the way till you see an open area with a nice view of the cliffs. The cliffs are for high wall, refer to map. There will be a intersection for cyclists to ride to Dairy Farm Quarry, so try to keep left when you see them.

FOR BOULDERING:
*After following the directions above
In the open area in view of the cliffs, keep going straight following the path filled with rocks and dirt. The start of the mountain bike trail is when it goes into the forest with a sign beside it “No hiking on the mountain bike trail”
Try to walk fast and stay on the side if any mountain bikers are passing by. Keep following the path till you see an exact sign on the entrance of the mountain bike trail. On the left of the sign you will see a path with a log and step-able rocks which will lead to the bouldering area after you exit out from the trail.
