Deepwater Soloing at Tonsai
Thailand › Tonsai Beach
Added by Kyle Frost
- Climb cliffs on a small island near Tonsai
- Use the ocean as your crash pad
- Full day of climbing with routes for varying levels of experience
There are a couple of outfits that do deepwater soloing tours in Krabi, but I went with Basecamp in Tonsai. For 700 baht (about $20 USD), you get a full day of climbing, including water, lunch, and climbing shoes.
You'll start about 9:30, heading out on a longboat to a local island with a couple of prime soloing spots. Get accustomed to the climbing (and jumping into the water) at the first site, which has a wide range of difficulties, but offers a pretty easy traverse for those who don't want to climb too high.
After some time climbing here, you'll jump back on the boat for a super quick ride over to a local beach, where the guides will break out a lunch of fried rice with chicken (or egg, for the vegetarians).
The second climbing location is just around the corner from the first and provides some more challenging routes, as well as higher exposure. There are also a few challenging roof routes for the more experienced climbers.
Have fun and be safe! Make sure you hand off your camera to someone else for a bit...I ended up with tons of pictures of everyone but myself, whoops.
- Some courage
