Comments: Tightened all of the bolts and anchor today. By my inspection, all looks tight and safe. Will keep an eye on things.

Comments: Re-bolted today with glue-in Wave bolts. It should be more secure for quite awhile. Still has sandy holds though. Just the nature of the soft sandstone.

Comments: Climbed this route with a friend. Very worthwhile route. The description already given is accurate. Had a difficult time pulling our ropes from the last rap station. You may want to walk the knot over the edge before rappelling down to help with the pull.

Comments: They have a 30 visit punch pass available for purchase at $180.00 This makes each visit $6 to access the canyon, climb and swim. For locals that is a more economical deal. A one time visit to climb is $17 which includes swimming. They have made several improvements to the property and facilities. I am not sure yet what they plan to do this winter during the off season.

Comments: All good suggestions. We did consider placing a separate anchor and may still do so. The chains at the anchor of Hades are a bit skimpy I must agree. Those are compliments of John Tully who began the development of the Lower Tier years ago. I gave him some grief about them already in a friendly way. So, there is still some work do do to make things better. (1) Replace the chains on the anchor of Hades, to something beefier (2) Establish an independent anchor for Cryptic Funk (3) Finish ... more >>

Comments: I like your name of the extension. Fun play on names. I had thought about getting back out there and extending the climb but never had the right partner at the right time. Good job.

Comments: Climbed the first pitch in January 2016. Excellent line. Lots of insects on this wall that is on the edge of the rain forest.

Comments: Climbed the first two pitches with John Tully yesterday. Broke a hold on the upper section of the second pitch and went for a ride. The route is still evolving as more climbers get on it. Good anchors and bolts.

Comments: I just got back from climbing in Railay. This was my fourth visit (since 2009) to the area to climb and enjoy the beaches and do a little scuba diving. The climbing is still fantastic and every year there are more titanium rebolted routes which is nice. I however, did notice a lot more visitors to the beaches in general. Not so much an increase in climbers, but a definite increase in overall numbers of tourists and families. This was a little disappointing as I found the paths and walkways ... more >>

Comments: It may have been a 10a when it was first bolted, but now with the rounded and polished holds it feels more difficult. Todd Perkins has rebolted it with glue in wave-bolts and thus protects much safer than in the past and is an OK alternative if the other (and better) 5.10s to the left are occupied.

Comments: Climbed this route for the first time Oct 22, 2015. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the route. Nice belay ledges. Took our approach shoes up with us and it made the walk-off more pleasant.
