These routes are up right from the Maui Thai beach...

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!

Shady most of the day. This wall is usually crowded, and during high tide, the water comes almost to the base of the routes just off the beach. Almost half the routes are up and to the right in the foliage above the beach.

Getting There 

Look for a covered bench area at the far end of the East Railay beach (opposite end from all the resorts and bars) past the private resort where the path to Phra Nang Beach begins. Muay Thai starts just beyond the benches on the beach.

Protection 

Like many areas in Krabi, ALL routes at Muay Thai have been rebolted with Titanium bolts (with red glue). King's new 2011 7th Ed. guidebook uses a "T" on the route topos to show where Titanium has been used. All proceeds from book sales go to rebolting Railay and Tonsai. Apparently, you can order the book from King Climbers for 1,050 Baht (or US equivalent) at kingclimbers@iname.com (specify # of books needed and your address).

Not a very interesting route. A little bit dirty. One mitigating factor that makes up for its lack of quality is that it's in the shade....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
