  • Koh Tao  

    Koh Tao/ Turtle Island is part of the chain of Islands in the gulf of thailand close to the islands Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. The island is giant granite boulder field, its is easily world class in terms of bouldering opportunity. Much of the crags and boulders are underdeveloped yet a few have that been developed most notably the secret garden (behind sairee beach) which has routes as hard as V11 (James and the Giant Peach) and Meks Mountain which has trad and sport routes up to that potentially go up to 7a+ and beyond.

    Getting There 

    From Bangkok: Use the lomprayah ferry service in khoa sarn rd to book a bus ride (7 hours) to the champhon and take the ferry (1 hour) There is a night ferry service available too.

    Alternatively the nearest airport is Koh Samui which is an hour and half ferry ride away.

    This information on Koh Tao is very outdated, there are 30+ sport (which you can also TR most), 10+ trad (including a 6 pictcher), remote TR climbs on isolated rocks and 1000's of bouldering problems.

    I have contacted one of the admins to offer to assist with editorial changes as I am the author of the guide listed in the link.

    I have deleted the route "Axe Attack" (poor description anyway) so that you can add areas. Please provide good descriptions (directions, rock type, types of climbs, sun/shade, etc.) for these areas, then add whatever routes you'd like. It's all yours!

    Koh tao is not an climbing area, it is an island with many climbing areas on it . please remove the koh tao area . leave mexs , machetey and climbers cove . from there we can start marking all the areas individually and not just koh tao .
