    dem walls - pt II

    February 15, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    on our second day we start early again at 1-2-3,
    afterwards we hike on to phra nang beach (beautiful, but rather crowded - compared to the rest of the area)
    at the end of the beach we take a short stroll through the jungle to reach another wall to climb -
    but, regretfully, without the guidebook at hand i can't seem to remember it's name - shame on me!
    since our utter lack of training has our fingers and muscles hurting by early afternoon, we spend the rest of the day swimming and relaxing....

    climbing railay

    February 13, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    first steps!

    we get up early (to avoid the "climbing jams" happening due to the various climbing schools around the peninsula) and throughout the day we visit 3 spots:

    the 1-2-3-wall
    the daimond cave wall
    the eagle wall

    at the last one i attempt a nerly 30m-pitch after an intense day and fail about 3m from the top -
    DAMNIT!

    moving to tonsai

    February 12, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    after another hotel-breakfast (this time with eggs!) we take a taxi to ao nang beach, where we embark in a boat to tonsai - this time taking the direct trip to avoid having to carry our luggage over the hill through the jungle...

    we move into our bungalow (jungle hut or paasook) and spend a rather lazy first day settling in, reading in our hammocks and taking a stroll around, gaining first glimpses if the walls and routes we plan to climb in the next several days.
