The Drinking Wall is a great little crag with lots of quality routes and some of the best rock on Koh Phi-Phi. The wall faces east like most walls on the island but the close proximity of the jungle offers a little more shade. The rock tends to have less holds than other walls providing powerful, challenging routes and even some nice cracks. All of the routes listed here have been rebolted.
The Drinking Wall is tucked away in the jungle north of the Tonsai Tower and is visible from the main path heading east from the peer. Just take the obvious brick path east of the peer and when it splits stay right. You should be heading towards some bungalow's at this point with the wall visible in the jungle beyond. Once you get to the end of the path take a right and you'll run into a trail that leads up into the jungle. Follow this trail for about 5-10 minutes right to the base of the Drinking wall.

This is a fun sustained route that climbs the left side of a large stalactite. The route ends on a ledge at the top of the stalactite but it is possible to move left and continue up "Driller" for a longer pitch. I'm not sure what the grade would be if you did this link-up. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
