  • Description 

    This is the latest addition to the Ko Yao Noi climbing areas. A long steep featured cliff with over twenty one routes so far. The routes on the right side require a 60m rope the left side requires a 70m and a few routes on the far left a 80m rope to lower off with. Take care when lowering as some of these routes overhang more than forty feet you will need to back clip in order to land on the ledge. After the climb is cleaned it is possible for the last person to lower all the way off the ledge and walk back up.

    Getting There 

    Hire a boat or motor bike to reach The Paradise Beach Resort. Find a faint jungle trail at the northern end of the Paradise Resort beach. Follow this trail up staying left at the fork the continue up increasingly steeper terrain until the trail ends below the base of the wall. Look for a small wooden ladder or boulder up to reach the actual base
