Barefoot bouldering at the popular back wall on Ph...
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!
Warning : stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. There is extensive rebolting being done to replace suspect bolts with titanium glue-ins.

This is the back wall directly across the concrete patio from the Princess Cave, shady. Be aware of the crowds of tourists and souvenir hawkers, and keep in mind that climbing in the actual Princess Cave is off limits.

7 or 8 routes were equipped with Titanium glue in bolts in 2010 for the Climbing Competition. There are two on the left in the darker rock that are 5.11, two more in the middle under the big stalagtite that are 5.12ish, then one more vertical one on the right that is hard 5.12. The last two on the right are 5.10 and 5.9 and are obviously easier than the rest. Be courteous and share the area, or we may lose access completely to climbing.


Getting There 

Walk towards the Muay Thai/1-2-3 areas, and before you get there, you'll find a concrete path going right around the resort next to the cliff face. Walk down this path, dodging souvenir hawkers, and you'll come to a concrete patio with a beach in front of it.
