The Oyster Blade is a limestone spire about 1/4 mile down the arm of Phi Phi from the Tonsai Wall. It is about half way between Tonsai Wall and Hin Tak (Monkey Beach). You should be able to spot it from the main beach in town, a detached pillar, with a small beach just next to the jungle at the base.
Take a boat, or walk at low tide, or even mid tide if you don't mind a little wading. Probably won't be able to walk there and back if you are going to the top.

The Hand of Bhudda is an outstanding moderate multipitch that summits the Oyster Blade. You get to tag the summit and get an outstanding view of Phi Phi. (there is a photo of this in the Lightner guide.) The pitches are on the short side, about 80' or so each, but this takes advantage of great belay stances.
