Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


This remote crag is located on the northern end of Ko Yao Noi and requires a boat ride, a short jungle hike and some climbing up fixed lines to reach the base. The wall juts out of a deep chasm and has small wooden platforms to belay from. The approach and base are a bit tricky but the quality of the stone is superb. The routes are technical and sustained. Shade in the afternoon. Not suitable for parties larger than six. Bring a 60m rope and 17 quickdraws.

Getting There
