Spirit Mountain is a limestone tower that has several aspects and climbing walls. Nearly all of the routes were put up after 2008 and nearly all of the bolts are Titanium Glue Ins.
The climbing ranges from overhanging tufa climbs to slabby face climbs and everything in between. There are excellent climbs at every grade from 5.9 to 5.13. This is a bit of a rarity in Thailand.

I've been told this is the best crag in Thailand, and while I haven't climbed on too many, I can believe it.
