Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The first climb on Tonsai Tower and the second one in all of Thailand. This climb originally went a long way up the right side of the wall on sharp rock but only the first pitch has been rebolted. Horizontal jugs with more interesting moves than some of the climbs on the right but still short and simple.

On the left side of the wall. From the trail walk left, past a handful of routes on white flowstone. Walk until you get to an obvious horizontal tree that is an excellent belay bench, and a patch of vegetation that is growing up the wall. This is the second route from the veg. on the wall.

Protection 

Ti and SS glue in bolts and threads. 8 draws.

Location 

Left Sector. From the trail, walk left past the loose section of rock. You will see an obvious white arete of flowstone... This is "Mr. Phi Phi." From the loose rock to the patch of vegetation going up the wall (climbers right to left) the climbs are as follows:

- Seven Samurai
- Mr. Phi Phi
- Lois Lane
- Trong Pai
- Baron Von Tok
- Latitude Eight
- Brian Fagman
