I'm flying solo to Thailand on the 21st. I will most likely be in the Tonsai/Railey/Phi Phi/etc area for the next 4 months.

If you are also rolling solo or have a large or odd number group I'd be happy to climb with you. I've never climbed in Thailand before, however, in the states my current sport onsight level is 10d-11b. My hang dog level is 11d-12b. I'm looking to move up both of those by climbing as much as possible the next 4 months. I'd also like to try deep water soloing and take a boat out for some random multipitch sport. I've been climbing full time (mostly trad) for the past year and will be continuing to for another year. To help you decide if we'd enjoying climbing with each other, this is how I prefer to sport climb: warm up on some 5.10 you know you won't fall on, try a few climbs that you have a good chance of just barely onsighting, and then work some projects (this involves lots of hang dogging and/or redpoint attempts {in other words belay intensive! I hope to do the same for you}). If you don't like to fall or hate to hang dog belay, you probably shouldn't climb with me. I also prefer climbing in the shade, long days, and long walks on the beach...jk.

I'm flying into Phuket, so I will most likely be rolling into Tonsai the 25th or 26th.

Also, I'm wondering if anyone knows if they sell ropes in phuket/railey/krabi? I'm gonna be traveling light so if I could buy on there, that would be great. Jack Ziegler

I know that you can buy about anything you need (including a rope) for sport climbing in Railey. Aaron M

You can buy ropes but a new rope is the last thing I would want there. Expect a rope to get trashed quickly due to sand. Bring an old rope if possible. Have fun, that place is heaven on earth. Eric D
