Description

Namphapayai Camp is located on the Pasak river in a remote valley near Saraburi, approximately two hours north-east of Bangkok. There are 50+ routes on several major climbing walls 15 minutes or less walking from the camp. The camp also provides food, lodging, gear rentals, and extensive knowledge of the area.

The rock is limestone as is common in Thailand, however there are fewer tufas and the wall is more compact than typical. This makes the climb more technical and challenging than the usual tufa overhang.

Three main walls:
Pasak River Wall: Access is via zipline (amazing!) Long stretch with all grades of routes.
School Wall: Usually shaded, several good easy lines, great place to TR with beginners, and good to learn to lead climb and build confidence.
Bat Cave Wall: Always shaded. Hard climbing.

  • The camp is a few hundred kilometers from the sea so there is no critical corrosion of the stainless steel here.*

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the Bangkok area. Rock quality ranges from poor and quite chossy to decent "B-level" limestone. It's pretty obvious that a good bit of chipping and cleaning went into developing the routes. Lots of climbing in the 7a range and above with a weekend's worth of beginner-friendly routes. Potential for FAs. Zipline access is fun and just adds to the Thai-backcountry environment. The best thing about the camp and destination is that it's truly a climber's refuge complete with slacklines, hangboard set up, and a communal hangout that has that climber dirtbag hangout feel to it. Inexpensive and worth the trip for families, beginner climbers, and advanced climbers.

I'll be back for sure. Sep 18, 2017
