Roof Right Side

International > Asia > Laos > Thakhek (Pha Tam Kam)

Description

The right section of the roof offers a great selection of long steep climbs, on big holds. With Climbs ranging from 5.11 to 5.13c, there are plenty of warm ups and projects for the visiting climber. The climbing is incredibly 3 dimensional and hard to read initially. All of the routes are equipped with permanent quickdraws, however, locals have been steeling the first draw off of most climbs.

The roofs offer all day shade which is a blessing on the hot sunny days. It also stays dry in the heaviest of rains, making it a great place to climb nearly any day.

Getting There

From the Green Climbers Home, head down the dirt road for 250 meters until you see the huge roof on your left. Follow a short trail to the base of the cliff. 5 Minute approach.

[Hide Comment] For a lot of these climbs, most people unclip the first one or two draws to reduce rope drag. It shouldn't be too hard to do after you clip the next bolt.

As with fixed draws, make sure to inspect draws for wear and tear. Feb 24, 2023
