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

Description [Suggest Change]

Probably one of the most exposed pitches in all of Thailand!

This climb starts on the orange ledge 90 meters up the wall. From the belay, traverse right past a titanium bolt and a thread and stem out to a large free hanging stalactite. Be gentle! Continue up and right past another large tufa. Get out on the tufa for the powerful crux move, and then up and right for a pumpy and extremely airy finish!

Location [Suggest Change]

The Ledge Routes. Access this sector by doing either "Rev de Phi Phi Don" ("Pai Noon Mai") or "Von Tok Trong Pai." There are three routes starting at the right anchor on the ledge. From left to right, "Baron Von Tok le Retour," "3D Zone" and "Vertical Vision."

Protection [Suggest Change]

12 titanium glue in bolts.

Loved this route. So much air under you. It was a little dirty in sports, but fantastic moves through the 3! big tufas. I got a little lost near the top where the description above says go out right, but far right has no bolts and is nasty sharp rock. I ended up taking the last 2 bolts to the shared anchor with 3D zone which seemed right and still consistent with the grade. 3D zone takes the line left of the tufas and vertical vision stays right until just after the 3rd one when it punches straight up to join together for 2 bolts and the anchor.

When cleaning on the way down, clip the extra tail from the belayers side of the rope to you so you don't get stranded, unclip the last draw, and go for the big ride 300+ feet over the bay! Nov 29, 2017
