Description

Circus Oz starts near the top of the trail from Railay West, right of the huge cave, going up a steep wall (5.10a first pitch) to the anchor. Note: Lord of the Thais route goes straight up at this point. The 5.10d second pitch bears left up along some stalactites. The 3rd 5.11c pitch bears left above the cave to an anchor shared with Inaka and Continental Drifters. The 4th pitch is 5.10c that ends in a hollow. Note: The 4th pitch may still have steel bolts.

Location

Circus Oz is located right-center on Thaiwand wall, just left coming up the trail from Railay West Beach. Start right of the huge cave above at left. Circus Oz pitch 1 is the same as Lord Of The Thais.

Protection

Rebolted with Titanium bolts (2010) for the first 3 pitches. About 19 bolts and 16 threads in total. The last pitch may still have 6 steel bolts.
