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: Fun climb with an amazing view at the top. Well worth the hassle of timing it with the low tide.

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: I haven't been up to this crag in quite a few months. Good job on sending the route ! I had not yet "sent" it before I returned to the desert around St. George to climb.

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.

Comments: A great route? Probably not. The most climbed route at Crawdad Canyon. Yes. For many people this may be their first sample of rock climbing. Bored but wanting to warm up and put up the rope for the beginners in your group? Then climb the route 3 different ways. Up the center. Using the crack to the left. Undercling the crack to the right. All back to back.

Comments: I often climb this route when I am at the Fly Trap wall. The top 4 bolts are on excellent rock and require sustained climbing at the 5.11 grade. Don't miss this route or the route Moucha immediately to the left.

Comments: The begining of the climb is directly over a metal railing. I usually stick clip the first two bolts to avoid falling and impaling myself on the metal post. Tricky crimping to a blocky undercling then easier face climbing to the anchor. Nice basalt face climbing.
