DescriptionSpirit Mountain is a huge limestone tower that has several aspects and climbing walls. Nearly all of the routes were put up after 2008 and all of the bolts are Titanium Glue Ins.
The climbing ranges from overhanging tufa climbs to slabby face climbs and everything in between. There are some outstanding routes at every grade from 5.9 to 5.13. This is a bit of a rarity in Thailand.
And still a few 5.13s awaiting a FA ! Come out and get your name in the books :)
The location is located on mainland, less than 15miles from Railay/Tonsai, allowing climbers to combine a stay at the local Chong Pli bungalows with climbing on Railay & Tonsai (or vice versa)
Getting ThereDrive along the ocean to the Noppharat Thara junction (Road 4202): 3.1 km [GO RIGHT]
Drive on this road for 5.3 km
You are now at the big intersection with the main road to Krabi town, you'll see a gas station across the street, and a big karst tower across and left (this is it!): [GO LEFT]
Drive 0.8 km and make a RIGHT at SOI 6
Follow the Soi as it makes a turn to the right. You will see the bungalow camp entrance. This is also the crag entrance.
