This route is the finish to "Rev de Phi Phi Don," or as it was originally called, "Pai Noon Mai." The pitches described here start at the ledge, 90 meters up the tower. The first pitch ascends the overhanging wall above the belay, and is a .12a. The second pitch goes up through the last steep section, and continues to the summit. 5.12c. Descend by doing two rappels back to the ledge. One 60 meter rope OK, two is better.
The Ledge Routes. Access this sector by doing either "Rev de Phi Phi Don" ("Pai Noon Mai") or "Going Dutch." There are three routes starting at the right anchor on the ledge. From left to right, "Baron Von Tok le Retour," "3D Zone" and "Vertical Vision."
Bolted, titanium glue in bolts. 12 draws.
