Access Issue: Warning! Stainless steel bolts are suspect near the coast! Details

Description

4 Stars for a 5.4?? Damn right, son. While the climbing is nothing to buy Thai land over, the coolest thing about this climb is that from the anchors, you can climb into a giant TUNNEL. This cave-like tunnel takes you through the Thaiwand wall and eventually spits you out onto Phra Nong Beach! You literally climb through a mountain to reach secluded beach! A definite must-do for visiting climber!

Location

The obvious 5.4ish gully route that leads to a hanging cave. One of the first routes seen when arriving at the base of the wall.

Protection

4 bolts.

Bring a headlamp or use the flashlight app on your phone for inside the cave! You're in pitch blackness for 10 minutes or so. As you regain terra firma on the other side and find the path that leads down to the beach, stay to the right to find a cool little cove. Bring a bathing suit! Jan 1, 2016
