Description 

This area is new for Mountain Project, and is just getting started. Feel free to contribute!

Located near the entrance to the Diamond Cave National park. The walls directly to the left and right of the entrance are closed to climbing. This wall is located uphill of the entrance and has many moderates. Beware of crowded conditions.

Getting There 

At the north end of East Railey climb a gazillion stairs (it will feel like it) to the Diamond cave, follow the signs.

Chok Dee 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Asia : Thailand : ... : Diamond Cave
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....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Like Art said, the area is filled with moderates and might be a good destination early in your trip if you have never been to the area. My memory is poor but my notes gave "keep the jam man" 3 stars.

Many other routes were ticked off with no real notes aside from how many bolts & threads. "les petites oreilles/diamons are forever" is a nice line but the 2nd anchor is hidden behind a large stalactites and difficult to spot.

Wish I had better notes to add some routes but I fear I wouldn't do them justice.

I've been meaning to put some routes up for some time, but the guides all disagree on facts for this wall. Still, the place is worth it to get used to Thai climbing, and head to The Rock bar.

I'll see what I can do on routes based on my notes, feel free to add info, maybe we can figure it out together.

From Railay East Beach: head toward Diamond Cave Resort and Spa (northern end past most of the bars/eateries but if you get to the Last Bar you've gone too far). Head west (away from the beach) toward the hotel when you see a sign for it. Just before entering the hotel area proper, pass through an archway on your left. Take a right and follow the sidewalk (with a wall on your right), pass the Diamond Cave, and look for climbing on your left.
