Most of the crags and boulders are underdeveloped (Although Koh Tao has over 80 bolted sport routes). A very notable bouldering area is the secret garden (behind sairee beach) which has routes as hard as V11 (James and the Giant Peach). There are potential for hard problems, but they haven't be established yet. Some of the most popular sport route crags on the island are Meks Mountain, Golden View, Jansom Bay and Lang Khai.
There is also a small indoor bouldering wall on the island. It has relocated to the Evasion Koh Tao shop and is open as of Jan 2018. It is primarily used for kids.
There are many shops that offer climbing lessons, rentals, and advice!
Perfect place to be able to climb, scuba dive, free dive, relax or party, and eat amazing food from all cultures of the world, while on a budget!
There is a new rock climbing guide in app form that was released in November of 2019, it can be found here: rakkup.com/guidebooks/thail…
