Description

As the name suggests, you can only climb here at low tide. It also gets shade only in the afternoon, so if you're only here for a week or two there'll only be a few days where low tide coincides with afternoon shade, so its worth planning ahead to visit this crag on the days that work. It's worth it, the routes are stellar.

Approach

Walk all the way to the right end of Railay East bay and continue on the small beach, passing 'Muay Thai' and 'One-Two-Three'. Pass the entrance to 'Duncan's Boot' on the right and continue walking around the shore for about 500m until you reach a small bay in front of a huge boulder. Walk to the end of the bay amd up behind the boulder. Climbing down on the other side, you'll reach another beach with 'Low Tide Wall' on your right.
