Summary

Sport climbing crag in Ao Nang town itself. Good mix of moderate to difficult climbs (5a to 8a with most being excellent 6s and 7s). All titanium bolts and well-maintained crag overall.

Description

The North Wall is the newest crag in Krabi and it's in Ao Nang - so on the mainland and not Railay-Tonsai peninsula. Developed in the last few years, all bolts are titanium set with Hilti 500 glue.

Climbing is similar to Railay-Tonsai - steep and 3D with some very long routes - especially the Mythic Beasts sector.

Majority of the routes can be climbed even on rainy days. But watch out for the mosquitos - bring spray and mosquito coils.

No toilets so far so please be prepared to "go in nature". The developers are considering how some kind of eco-toilet can be built there.

Access issues

Access is through private property (plantation and a residence) so please be mindful as the property owners are fine with climbing there so long as climbers respect their property and privacy (house). In particular, avoid parking motorbikes etc on parking area for the house.

Approach

From Ao Nang beach, follow the main road (4203) towards Krabi town for about 1.5km. Turn right into Soi 11 (opposite of the 'De Loft Hotel') and follow the road for about 900m. Where the road turns left (200m after the sign to the 'Emerald Muay Thai Gym'), turn right for 30m, then take the small trail slightly to the left into the forest. Follow the trail to the end (about 100m) and park your motobike. Walk about 1 minute to the crag right in front of you.

It is also marked on Google Maps - search: "Ao Nang North Wall"

Ethic inherited from Krabi Mainland

Some areas on the mainland are sensitive with respect to access as it is on private land, please behave accordingly!
