Description

Four multi-pitch routes on medium quality and partly loose rock. All routes share the same start from the first belay station.

Approach

Located left above 'Thaiwand Wall'. Challenging approach involving some easy though exposed climbing on fixed ropes.

Walk all the way to the end of Railay beach. In the corner behind the Rayavadee resort, find a trail into the forest, which leads you to 'Wee's Present Wall' after about 50m. Turn right and follow the wall to the end. Follow the trail straight ahead and climb down a small boulder. Keep following the steep trail for about 2 minutes until you see a fallen tree on the left. Pass the tree and follow the trail to the roght. Just before you reach the left side of 'Thaiwand Wall', turn left and follow the trail uphill. Find a fixed rope and climb up about 30m at easy level to the belay anchor.

Descent notes

Backclip when lowering to make it back to the starting belay station.
