Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Nice area with routes mostly bolted or rebolted in 2002.

Probably some of the most inland of the routes at Tonsai.

This wall is next to another wall called Wild Kingdom - it is actually just the left side of the wall, while Wild Kingdom is the right side.

The Nest has about 7 routes down low, and then 4 or 5 other routes up high that are second pitches.

Grades run from French 6a to about 7a, so roughly speaking these routes are mostly middle 5.10 to hard 5.11.

Getting There 

Walk to the end of the beach and turn inland on the path near the bar. Walk up the trail and just before it bends back to the right, there is a little trail into the woods leading to the wall.

Moving right on the wild bit.

Dozer Days 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII 25 E4 6a  Asia : Thailand : ... : The Nest
Really great line, I loved this route.Climbs up a steep juggy section followed by a long arete with reachy moves. Great slapping back and forth, with a full-on leg thread to get a really good rest near the top of the first pitch- right in the steep part. The "extension" pitch is only worth doing if you are going to climb at the "Golden Ball." Otherwise it's a bit contrived with more rope-drag that good/hard climbing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
