Jim Butler on Golden. Classic!!!
Koh Laoliang is an amazing private island in Trang Province, south of Krabi Province. One island, one resort with about 60 pitches of classic Thailand climbing. There is also an amazing bouldering cave and endless DWS!
This place is as secluded as it gets. A great alternative to the crowds of Tonsai and Railay during Madness Season (Dec-March). The climbing is literally a one minute walk from the resort.
The island is full of afternoon climbing as the rock faces east. Many climbers end up spending more time snorkeling, kayaking and simply relaxing as this is a true island paradise experience.
Seemed to us like the best kept secret in Thailand. No crowds (and unpolished holds - at least for now...it's advised you keep the chalking up to a minimum), large variety of first rate routes, great food, amazing kayaking/etc. Do yourself a favor and build some time into the itinerary for Tonsi and make the trip...you'll be glad you did
