Pha Daeng is the towering mountain that sits over the river on the west side of town, you canít miss it. The close proximity makes for easy climbing and the size has a huge potential for development. As of í09 there is one main cliff and then a couple of smaller developed areas further down. Only the main cliff was accessible in the wet season.
First get to the west town. If itís dry season you can take any number of the suspension foot bridges. Go all the way across, not just to the little peninsula with all the bars on it. During the wet season they take down the foot bridges so you have to head a bit south to the big vehicle bridge and pay 4000 kip (50 cents). Follow the road around right until you get to the Maylyn Guest House and continue on for 200 yards or so until you see the mountain on your right and a blue sign for a cave leading across the rice field. More than likely youíll be swarmed by a gang of kids there to collect your 4000 kip to go see the cave. Iíve had success explaining to them that weíre not there to see the cave, and other times I just paid the 50 cents to not deal with the hassle. Head across the rice field, trending left, towards the obvious large wall.

The start meanders a bit, following the line of pockets to the right and then back. The direct line goes just a bit harder and probably a cleaner sequence. 5.11d +/- a letter depending on the patch you choose....[more] Browse More Classics in International
