Description 

Probably the best piece of developed rock in Laos. A towering wall of clean white limestone, overhanging enough to protect the area even in torrential downpour. The area hosts about 20 climbs, from 5.10 to 5.13; mostly single pitch but there's a few two-pitch lines and a 4-5 pitch that almost hits the top. An absolute must see if you've come to Laos.

Getting There 

Depends on the exact path you took to get here, one of them leads straight here. Otherwise just follow the wall until you get to a huge corner of fantastic looking rock, you really can't miss it.

A stunning line shooting straight up the enter drastically overhanging wall on the left side. Starts easily up the corner for Chao Ling Chep Lai Lai then continues up the smooth slab until the wall shoots a solid 30 degrees past vertical. Continue up on pockets and pinches to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
