Rock Climbing in Krabi

Railay's Limestone Cliffs are Rock Climbing Heaven

Krabi’s limestone cliffs are heaven for rock-climbing enthusiasts, who come from all over the globe to take up the challenge of climbing them.

Over 650 routes have developed since the late 1980's when Krabi first witnessed the sight of people scaling its craggy mountains.

Routes follow limestone crags, steep, pocketed walls, overhangs and hanging stalactites. Some are accessed by boat while others are approached via a jungle walk or by abseiling above the sea.

Using the French grading system, routes range from beginner 5a's to classic multipitch 6a's, right up to the extremes of 8c. There's enough here to keep any climber busy for years.
