Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


An ok little warmup, that's more fun than it may look. Typical Thai climbing up bulbous limestone. This route shares the same start as Mot Daeng. Chock Dee goes straight up, Mot Daeng veers off to the right after the last sling.

Protection is mostly good but it's runout to the first bolt and a fall before clipping would be nasty and a fall at or just above the crux could result in grounding on the ledge above the last sling.


There are three routes around the corner to the left. The latest guide book says not to climb them. This is the 4th climb from the left on the main face. The first is Kai Kad. The second is Unknown 1. The third is Run Away.


3 (maybe 4 slings) and 3 bolts then the anchor.

There are 2 routes just left of Chok Dee. Probably described in a new book, but I didn't see any route info. I rate them both 5.9/10a
