This route is an easier start to the popular multi-pitch route The King and I. There are two steep bulges that must be surmounted with the first one being the easier of the two. The second crux comes right before the ledge.
If desired, you can continue with the second pitch (and beyond) of The King and I. Note that it's easiest to descend that route with two 60m ropes.
This route is on the right side of the Thaiwand Wall. It's accessed by climbing the bamboo ladder at the base of the wall and then heading up and right to a ledge for about 50 feet. Once on the ledge, you'll see three routes. This is the leftmost of the three.
Bolts. 10 clips. Rappel anchor. A 60m rope is required to lower off this route.
