Description

Loads of boulders!

The following two areas were literally in the Zen Gecko‟s office Backyard and Frontyard (hence the names) and offer a central
and diverse number of problems. Sit, the man who owns the land, also owns Koh Tao Info, a small shop on the corner where a
map of the area is also located. We ask that you please pay Sit and the ladies there a visit and purchase your drinks from
them. They also ask for a small donation to the Koh Tao school if possible. This is where almost all new boulderers to Koh Tao
go (or are sent) first. It‟s the most likely place to meet other boulderers (other than the GTA office) on the island. Both these
areas are coconut plantations and are most easily accessible off the Tanote Bay / Aow Leuk road. The Backyard is to the left
and the Frontyard to the right an up and over the hill. A few days worth of problems here. There is mention of “sandstone‟, we
have re-named it „sandstone like” as sandstone can‟t form inside granite (simple geology).

Getting There
