The "famous" Groove Tube on Fire Wall.
Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This area is new for Mountain Project, and is just getting started. Feel free to contribute!

Faces southeast, morning sun. Like nearly all Krabi routes, this area has steep, vertical climbing on good limestone.


Getting There 

Go all the way to the end of the beach (head away from the Freedom Bar). At the end of the beach is a restaurant; behind it to the left is a steep trail with fixed ropes.

Getting in the Groove

Groove Tube 5.9- 5c 17 VI HVS 4c  Asia : Thailand : ... : Fire Wall
This is a very cool climb!!!On the first pitch the crux might be near the ground. The 2nd pitch is seldom done but has a few harder spots. Mark Maffe discovered the first pitch of Groove Tube in 1995. It was buried beneath jungle growth and he cleaned it, added protection and gave the rating 5.10 (even though it was a very soft rating - he was worried that no one would climb it if he rated it lower, especially given the already soft ratings in that area - and he really wanted people to climb it...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
