Gwaht Lan

  • Grade context: FR
  • Aka: Sweep Cave

Description

Located halfway between Railay and Ao Nam Mao. Currently only one route rebolted with titanium, the rest has old expansion bolts and cannot be climbed.

Approach

At high tide, take a longtail boat from Railay East and ask to be dropped of at the beach in front of the crag.

At low tide, walk all the way to the left end of Railay East bay. Continue on the trail, passing Railay Great View resort and continue along the shore for about 25 minutes.

The best option is to take a boat at high tide and walk back in the evening at low tide.
