Description

One of the oldest crag in Central Thailand.

This crag was developed in the 90s by local Thai climbers although it remains relatively not known to international visitors due to majority of people flocking to Tonsai/Railay. While this crag lack the serenity and aesthetic due to its roadside location - the potential for further development in the surrounding area exists, along what's currently available boast some very high quality climbing in the range of 5.8, up to possible 5.13.

For anyone looking to escape the crowd and overly polished routes, Khao yoi has enough to entertain 5.10-5.12 sport climbers for several days.  

It is important to note that Khao Yoi's proximity to the coast has led to this area being affected by SCC (Stressed Corrosion Cracking) - a condition well-known to our neighboring crags in the south which create hazardous condition for climbing hardware. Fortunately, the local Bangkok Climbing Community was kind enough to offer support and treated this crag with fresh glue in hardwares in 2018. Majority of the routes are now equipped with Titanium + RE500 although several expansion bolts and Stainless-steel glue ins still exist. Please use caution.

There are two main climbing areas - Roadside crag and Temple crag.

Getting There

"Khao Yoi" is a district located in Petchaburi province approximately 120km southwest of Bangkok.

Several public transport exists ranging from Bus, Van, but it's probably best to rent a car or carpool with local Bangkok climbers.

For Road side crag - You can almost belay from the car
Temple crag - approximately 10 minutes hike up the stairs from the temple's parking lot.  Beware of monkeys 

Accommodation/Food

Several local guesthouse exists but don't count on many people speaking English here.  We mainly recommend "Le Mae Residence" which is several hundred meters from the crag.  Clean room with decent food.  

7 eleven is also conveniently located within walking distance from the crag
