Comments: The top edge above the anchor isn't very positive to pull through the crux, but after getting up there, I saw a nice hold a bit to the right to pull up on and stand to clip the anchor (if you don't wish to grab the chains beforehand).

Comments: Interesting line at the right of the climbable section of the wall (lichen lurks just to the right). I found some loose rock in the vertical seams in the first 20 ft. Can continue route by using last 5 bolts of "No Direction Home" for added enjoyment.

Comments: If JeffCo has designated this area as biologically "sensitive", explain to me this: If you look at a satellite image of Ralston Buttes, you will notice a new HUGE house built immediately east of the main summit area at the end of a road built just for access to the house. A round-about offers easy in and out. There appears to be a mini-golf course built in the backyard. A large road extends NW of this house up to a clearing that would suggest another location for a mansion. What on earth is goin... more >>

Comments: I always wondered where this V0 could be, because I could never get off the ground! All looked hard and sharp. Nice to hear you grade it V2.

Comments: Could this be called "Commitment" (V2) in Horan's Boulder Bouldering book?

Comments: Note on Rebolting: Like many areas in Krabi, ALL Muay Thai route have been rebolted with Titanium bolts (with red glue), as denoted in King's new 2011 7th Ed. guidebook with a "T" on the route topos. All proceeds from book sales go to rebolting Railay and Tonsai. Apparently, You can order the book from King Climbers for 1,050 Baht (or US equivalent) at kingclimbers@iname.com (specify # of books needed and your address).
You can view the rebolting pages at railay.com/railay/climbing/... more >>

Comments: A great long exposed route! A little sketchy for the 5.10- leader. NO need for locking anchor draws (there are modernly equipped "clip your rope in" bolts. Cruxy low on the climb to 2nd bolt and again after the last clip. I had to reach around the left with a foot and hand to feel secure getting to the anchor.

Comments: There are 2 routes just left of Chok Dee. Probably described in a new book, but I didn't see any route info. I rate them both 5.9/10a

Comments: We did a route left of Fire Starter (near the tree) we found to be something like 5.10a/b. We called it "Peter's Route" from a german friend who loved it.

Comments: This route is intimidating, its right above the ladder, and it ramps right up like a skateboard ramp to over vertical! the last clip was the crux for me. pumpy.
Viking in Heat (5.11c), you can see how it ramps up to an overhanging wall.

Comments: Awesome varied sustained climbing. I found the crux to be the throw to the last hold near the anchor, when you're good and pumped.

Comments: I found the crux to be the dyno to sloper above the smooth overhang. Can be avoided staying left.

Comments: Granby: a 5.9 route (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Climb a short, right-facing corner to a roof. Hand traverse left around the roof, past first bolt, to a mantle onto a small ledge, past a 2nd bolt. Climb easy moves to finish. (FA: Mark Rolofson and Mary Reidmiller, 2004).

Comments: Yes, quite harder than it looks! Wasn't sure whether to layback or just krank upward. Couldn't onsight it. Felt like a 12 compared to other 11d's I tried.
