Description 

Covert Crag is located in Donglan Forest Sport Climbing area, the first sport climbing area of Khon Kaen developed by Khon Kaen Climbing Club (KKCC). It is in Amper Si Chompu. About 2 hour drive from down town Khon Kaen. There are a lot of tall lime stone mountains in the area and bolting process started in 2016 and still on going. KKCC is trying to set up more routes and put more bolts in. This crag is facing north, so it is reasonable shade all day.

70 meters rope is RECOMENEDED for this crag. We bolted long routes.

Getting There 

From Mitraphap Rd, take Maliwan (No.12) road heading west about 94 km, turn right into 201 heading north for another 24.5 km, turn right into Afdc. Alley. At the big intersection, turn Left and drive north through the village, turn left again into a small dirt road to sugarcane field to coordinate 16°49'43.3"N 102°02'25.5"E at the mountain on your left.

Entrance to the unnamed road, it’s located just after a big Thai style house with a long brown fence (see photo), and it is 1.6 km north of Wat Wang Kon Daeng. Local people call it 'road to the sugarcane field' (thanon kao rai aoi).
