A great route on a pinnacle inside a cave.
Located inside the cave that is on the backside of the Thaiwand. You can approach it from Phra Nang Beach or by going through the cave at the Thaiwand all the way to the other side.
Bolts. Lots of them.

Actually this is a Skinner route. Brady's is next door: the Half-Pipe Dream. Current status of fixed pro is unknown to me.

Much of Escher wall is still in a state of disrepair when it comes to fixed pro. The Best Route in Minnesota, however, has been rebolted with titanium and red glue (currently considered the best pro in Krabi). I just climbed it yesterday. Such a great climb.

No Titanium on this route. Just Fixe stainless rings that look like they have seen better days. Really cool route though, deserves re-bolting. Easy for the grade.

Onsight, so must be soft. This route is equipped with 316 stainless steel and Hilte 500 glue (the good kind). Although not ideal, the bolts looked far better than routes with white glue. But I guess it's not about what you can see...

Amazing Route! A little spaced out delicate face climbing for the first section, stellar rest half way up and then the outstanding double arete to the top! This bad boy is long, a enduro pitch by Tonsai/Railey standards. Safely bolted, stays cool in the cave all day and is totally not only the "Best Route in Minnesota" but by far one of the best routes in the Tonsai/Railey area! Worth the trek from Tonsai beach. A MUST DO!!!
