This route is a rareity for Thailand.
Begin climbing a slab below and to the left of the corner(cruxy 5.10 move here), then trend up towards a detached flake on easier terrain. Lyback the flake for 15ft or so (these moves are also rare for the area) until you are standing on top of it. From here you are to the side and below the right facing corner. Make a thoughtful traverse to the start of the corner. From here a few delicate face moves gain access to the actual corner, and the holds that it provides. Climb the corner and persevere through the awkward and somewhat powerful crux that guards the anchor. Again- super unique climbing for the area!
A extension could go at 12+ or 13 something through the roof. Somebody will have the guns for this!
