This area is new for Mountain Project, and is just getting started. Feel free to contribute!
Goes into shade late morning. The crag is named the Keep because it was kept secret until all the routes were bolted and climbed. Vertical to slightly overhanging good limestone.
From the 1-2-3 Wall
head down the coastline away from the resorts. Near a jumble of boulders thru some bamboo you'll find a trail going to Duncan's Boot
, Jungle Gym etc. when the trail splits go right.
From Duncan's Boot
go right and around the next wall. Pass it and look for a wall with a deep canyon-like fissure (Jungle Gym). Go thru the fissure and drop down at its end onto a sloping ledge. Usually there is a fixed rope to help with the descent.

: ... : The Keep
Start on the boulder in the middle of the wall. Pull on, and make thin face moves for 40 feet. then, step up and left into a powerful bulge that offers some relief with tufa stemming. Take it easy on those tufas! pull up the tufas to a sharp pockety section, and clip the anchors. Lightner's guide lists this as 'one of the reasons you came to Siam.' I agree!...[more] Browse More Classics in International

everything here is freshly bolted with no polishing. by far the best crag on railey east for the 5.10-5.12a climber. start right and work your way left to the hard stuff and enjoy! every route deserves 2-4 stars
