Climbing Topos, Southern Thailand- Ao Loaliang

Climbing Topos | Climbing Loaliang

The Climbing here was pioneered by Trevor, the man who gave us the Keep, one of my favorite climbing spots in Thailand. The climbs here are an interesting mixture of roofs and some facy technical stuff. All in all very good. Thanks to Trevor, Steve, and others!

Climbing topos for Loaliang island

The Topos below have all been kindly provided by Steve. If there are any corrections please email us and we will change them. As there have not been that many people here the grades are only just being bedded down. There has been a bit of haggling and revision, and I think the grades below are pretty fair, certainly with a + of accuracy...
