Description

The Drinking Wall is a great little crag with lots of quality routes and some of the best rock on Koh Phi-Phi. The wall faces east like most walls on the island but the close proximity of the jungle offers a little more shade. The rock tends to have less holds than other walls providing powerful, challenging routes and even some nice cracks. All of the routes listed here have been rebolted.

Getting There

The Drinking Wall is tucked away in the jungle north of the Tonsai Tower and is visible from the main path heading east from the peer. Just take the obvious brick path east of the peer and when it splits stay right. You should be heading towards some bungalow's at this point with the wall visible in the jungle beyond. Once you get to the end of the path take a right and you'll run into a trail that leads up into the jungle. Follow this trail for about 5-10 minutes right to the base of the Drinking wall.

Man, we had a hard time finding our way here in 2018. I recall finding it easily in 2011. First, I believe the turn is around Phi Phi Nice Beach Resort as marked on google maps. This is pretty much the last walking path going east before the end of the beach at Ton Sai Tower. From the beach take this concrete path to its end. Pretty much step into someones backyard and walk up past a water tank. Past the tank, bare up and right and look for hand lines and follow the trash. Approach was steep, rough, and loose; wear shoes.
Warning the monkeys were aggressive and the mosquito were terrible. Both were far worse then at Ton Sai Tower. May 27, 2018
