Railay – Day 1 + Chong Phli – Day 34

A couple days ago I went to Ton Sai and Railay with Thomas and Martin.  Thomas and Martin climbed Cowabungalow 6b on Ton Sai Wall then we moved over to Tyrolean Wall and climbed Missing Snow 6b+.  I climbed it clean on my second try.  It is a fun pumpy route with polished feet.  After this, we went over to Railay.  Anong and I ate lunch while Martin and Thomas went over to The Keep.  After lunch we met them at 123 Wall.  I was thinking of climbing We Sad 6a+ which starts by jumping up on a stalactite but couldn’t see the bolts / slings up to the anchor so decided to go over to Muay Thai wall and climbed Tamada (Normal) 5 and Hello Christine 6a.  Both led cleanly.  I might have climbed these about 3 years ago the first time I came here but I don’t remember them so I’m calling it an onsight! 😛

On my way up Hello Christine 6a, there is a cave to the right that I climbed into. Kind of neat.

It was a long day. Got back to Ao Nang as the sun was setting.

There were a few days at Chong Phli I didn’t write about but today Anong and I went climbing there with Martin, Dorothy, and Thomas.  I warmed up on EFZ 6a+ then tried Buzzsaw 6b on top rope.  After flailing around on the start for a few minutes I got it figured out and made it to the top without too much trouble.  After this did a few more laps on EFZ 6a+ and called it a day.  There was no breeze so it felt very hot and I was getting tired.
