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


In the shade in the afternoon.

Descent: Double rope rappel from the ledge or two rappels with one 60 m rope and some back clipping down the second pitch of Dozer Days.

Four routes in my guidebook. From climbers left to right:
Rawn Chip Hei (Very hot) 6a+
Bosch Job 6B+ (shares start with Rawn Chip Hei) then goes right
F.A. (Faucet Ass) 7B+ (bolts go up right out of the belay)
Mr Burns 7A+ (traverse the fixed ropes to climbers right to access)

I will leave these routes for other climbers to add.

Getting There 

Climb Dozer Days located at the Nest on Ton Sai. Climb both pitches to the large ledge at the bottom of the Golden Ball.

Nice route up a stalactite feature high above Ton Sai with good views of Thaiwand wall. The belay ledge is a very comfortable spot and could accommodate 4 parties. The crux is the initial 10 meters after that it eases up....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

This area above The Nest was really originally named THE GOLDEN BOWL. Named for the concave, overhanging wall with beautiful golden rock. NOT the Golden Ball.....
