Description

Thailand's premier climbing area and world famous rock climbing destination.

Approach

Long tail boat from Krabi or Ao Nang, head to the water front and ask around. Best bet is to ask for Railay, it's the cheapest boat ride, and there are always tourists headed there, so boats are more frequent

History

View historical timeline

Several European climbers like Dominique Potard and Francois Burnier from France came to Thailand in 1988 armed with hammer drills and steel expansion bolts to put up the first sport climbs around the Phi Phi islands. This continued in 1989 and the early 90′s with the discovery of Railay Bay and the Phra-Nang pennisula. Areas like 'One-Two-Three' and the 'Muay Thai' on Railay East saw the first routes on the Phra-Nang peninsula.
