It doesn't matter how old or young, unfit or uncoordinated, our instructors will find something you'll enjoy climbing.

Equipment
The courses include our guide and all equipment and insurance. The only thing you need to bring is your camera! We keep our guide to student at one guide with no more than four students ensuring high teaching standards.

For those who are not familiar with climbing here is a brief explanation of some of the terms used to describe the courses:

 

Top rope climbing
students climbing the rock at 123This is the way you will start out climbing. Your instructor will first climb to the top of the route and loop the rope through a fixed anchor. Once back on the ground you will be attached to one end of the rope which runs through the anchor at the top of the climb and back down to the instructor. A belay device is a fail-safe device which lets the instructor keep your rope tight. While you climb the instructor tightens the rope, keeping it firm so that if you slip you are safe, or if you get tired you can let go and be suspended in your harness in complete safety.

This is a great way to learn which leaves you plenty of time and energy to concentrate on climbing or to simply enjoy the view.

 

Lead climbing

This allows the student to feel the thrill of all aspects of the sport as well as giving the confidence to be able to go out and climb with friends after the course.

In Thailand all leading is done on stainless steel bolts that have been drilled into the rock. The lead climber on ascending the route clips onto the bolts and clips the rope through quick draws. This is the safest and easiest way to lead a climb. Due to the nature of limestone rock all routes are bolted and therefore we are unable to offer any courses on natural protection climbing.

 

Rappelling
rappelling into the sunsetRappelling, also known as abseiling, is a means by which climbers lower themselves off the rock. Climbers put the rope through a belay device attached to their harness. They then slide down the rope using the belay device to control the speed of their descent. This not only makes for good pictures but is great fun!

 

Safety
We have never had an accident on one of our courses, and we'd like to keep it that way. However this doesn't mean we aren't prepared. All of our instructors are trained in first aid and emergency and we provide insurance for the duration of our courses.

To book a course please select the booking forms option from the menu. If you have any questions or problems please don't hesitate to e-mail us at info@railay.com

Hope to see you on the rock...
