Getting to Know You 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  Asia : Thailand : ... : The Thaiwand

The second crux comes right before the ledge.If desired, you can continue with the second pitch (and beyond) of The King and I. Note that it's easiest to descend that route with two 60m ropes....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
