My first attempt to rock climbing and I know I have to try it when I'm in Krabi! My verdict - I'll come back for more!!I booked directly with Hot Rocks Climbing School and they are very professional yet knowledgable about the art of rock climbing. Owned by a Thai, Luang and his wife, Sara Lisa, Swedish, Hot Rocks cater to all beginners as well as intermediate rock climbers..I had Nut as my instructor and with his good English spoken, my experience during the climb was superb!His instructions and directions to get up to the top of the climb was very precise and easy to follow!
I will train myself up in an indoor rock climbing school in Singapore as I want to go back for more outdoor rock climbing experience with Hot Rocks again!
Have fun!

If you want to do a deep water solo, do it with Hot Rocks. They have a beautiful sail boat, provide shoes, and charge the same (I think) as folks who take you out in noisy cramped longtails and have you climb without shoes. Lounging on pillows on the deck of their boat was almost as fun as the climbing.
But the real reason to choose Hot Rocks? They are incredibly kind. My husband got violently ill on the boat from food poisoning from something he ate for breakfast, and the crew went out of their way to help him make it through. Stellar, stellar guys.

We took a day tour for deep water solo : it was awesome.
We were a group of 8-10 people, on a really nice sailboat.
The staff was giving us fresh water bottles when needed, provided the lunch (really good!) and were really friendly.
We sailed to the deep water solo spots, it was excellent (but sometimes scary!). You can either jump from the boat and go the spot or take a kayak to reach it.
We also were able to do some snorkeling, the staff lent us gear for that.
When sailing back to Railay west, we had a beautiful sunset.
An excellent day, worth every penny

I would recommend the half or full day experience for anyone and everyone. If you've never climbed before this is the place to do it! The guides have a great energy, focus on safety and are simply brilliant.
My wife and I also had the pleasure of doing the deep water solo, which was undoubtably the best experience of my life (other than getting married). The trip itself is beautiful and the sail boat is by far the best in terms of comfort and practically, compared to the other climbing schools who provide simple long rail boats.
Also very well priced overall!

» Hot Rock Climbing
Swedish-Thai couple of Saralisa and Luang gave birth to the Hot Rock Climbing School, which is the third and final climbing center that we decided to publish here on Adrex.com. Luang arrived in Railay at the very end of the 80's and lived in a cave for the first few years, getting there by climbing! It's hard to imagine someone of greater experience with climbing the local walls. The original Hot Rock Climbing School was set up on Railay East in 1994 and keeps its Railay East location between Ya Ya resort and Bhu Nga Thani resort until now. Hot Rock climbing School is a cool and relaxed place to hang out on.



Our short stay at Krabi focusing on climbing had convinced us, there is no wonder that renowned for the spectacular views and accessibility, the cliffs of Krabi see flocks of tourists and avid climbers annually

Went deep water soloing for the day, with Hot Rock Climbing School. Simply superb, the climbing and jumping off cliffs was great, snorkelling was awesome.
Lots of water and fruit, albeit lunch could be improved.
We got to fish on the way back as well, which was a fun experience.

I would do it again with no hesitation

This past summer I traveled to Tonsai to take a lead climbing course and scale some of the best rock in the world. My friend and I chose to take the course through The Rock Shop with Sarut. Sarut was extremely knowledgable, safe, and personable. When my frimd became sick with food poisoning they told us to jusy let them know when she felt better to continue the course. Sarut even spent time that day practicing knots with me so that I could have more practice. We were so pleased with our experience we chose to take another half day guided climb and the following day rented our equipment from the shop.

» Saralisa,
We have finally settled in back in the states and wanted to take a moment to thank you... truly... thank you. Your assistance in setting up the wedding ceremony made the day unique and one of the best days of our lives. It captured our character and was exactly what we were looking for. Mr. Nut and Mr Khung were professional and incredibly helpful throughout the day. Andre and Simon were simply amazing and while there were some surprises on way the up (a little more of a rock climb than we thought), they were real troopers. The day was perfect, simply perfect! Thank you so very much and please feel free to talk with Simon and use any of the material he has that captured our day

» Leap of faith////
A man is climbing without a harness up a perpendicular wall of limestone in south-west Thailand. At a height of about 12 metres, his body stretched, he's struggling to find a hold to complete a move - his fall is inevitable.

I am on the wall below him and take shelter in a small cave. I hear his shriek, feel his fear, see him next when he scuds by, more a missile than a climber. But falling from an island has definite advantages and my fellow climber creates a perfectly safe bomb before disappearing into the (reasonably) soft and clear Andaman Sea.

Cliff jumping, or deep-water soloing, involves climbing as high as you are capable up a near perpendicular island wall then leaping, or falling depending on your climbing skills, into suitably deep water.

Off the Railay peninsula, near the town of Krabi, there may be dozens of islands. Some are knuckles of limestone with wedges of jungle and chinks of white sand. Others take conical forms and rise spectacularly from the Andaman. The waters at the base of some are up to 10 metres deep.

Advertisement Rock climbers and cliff jumpers make good use of the sheer walls and accompanying deep water. A group of us, five maiden deep-water soloists, had sailed from a Railay beach on a 12-metre yacht as part of a locally run tour.

The owner of the business, Vitsanu Luang Rachsang, lost his first yacht in the 2004 tsunami and replaced it after donations. A Sydney-born fellow who wants to be known only as Mick is one of two guides for the day; he's an experienced climber and a mate of Luang's.

After a 40-minute cruise, Mick transferred us to the base of an island's wall in a motorised rubber dinghy. The fellow I've watched fall is Swiss man Roger Bebie. "I have been skydiving and bungy jumping but this is the craziest shit I have ever done," he says. "If you go [tandem] skydiving you get pushed out of the plane," continues Bebie. "With bungy jumping you can go without thinking. With cliff jumping you are in control [mostly] and you decide when to jump. This plays with your mind; it's awesome."

For those not into heights there are also challenging lower level traverses on the island: some of our fellow climbers jump and fall from a rock ledge about two metres above the water. On another island experienced soloists leap from a 25-metre-high wall into the sea.

In the afternoon, after lunch on a beach and many searches for my nerve, I attempt to follow Bebie to his great height. But almost every centimetre I creep up messes more with my mind: even though I'm an inexperienced climber l feel an urgent need for a rope despite the fact I know I can't possibly come to (much) harm.

I get to about a height of seven metres, can't hold on to the next chink in the rock, and jump before I fall. My scream is a blend of thrill and fear. My heart is still racing when I come up from the water and I go for a calming swim before the return to Railay.

Late afternoon our second guide, Kung, trawls for barracuda. Some weighing 20 kilograms have been caught recently and we cliff jumpers are invited to try our luck, yet all politely decline. Our energy has been left on a cliff

» What's the best place in the world to learn to rock climb?
From a practical standpoint, your neighborhood climbing gym. You don’t need to hop on a plane to the other side of the planet to learn how to tie in or belay. In fact, you should probably see if you actually like rock climbing before planning an expensive, globe-trotting vacation around it. But the best place in the world for people who are still relatively new to the sport would have to be Railay, Thailand.
Railay is a bulb-shaped patch of tropical paradise jutting into the Andaman Sea that’s accessible only by boat. Towering over its golden sands are massive limestone towers erupting from the jungle floor toward the sky. Thousands of routes are scattered among its cliff faces, nearly half of them bolted, and ranging in level of difficulty from beginner to Chris Sharma-worthy (he’s been there, and more than once). There are a ton of guide services in the nearby town of Krabi. Typical three- or four-day courses for newbies start with easy climbs on the first day, followed by lead climbing instruction, and finally a multi-pitch ascent. One of the more reputable outfitters is Hot Rock Climbing School, which offers half-day to three-day instruction, with a maximum of three climbers per instructor

» What an incredible
way to spend the day! We opted for the Deep Water Free Solo, which had me scared at first, but the professionalism displayed by HOT ROCK CLIMBING SCHOOL and the crew quickly put me at ease. Quality equipment, solid climbing advice and a fun itinerary. I never felt in danger even though a storm seemed to be rolling by most of the day (which never actually hit us) and the activity was inherently dangerous. I highly recommend climbing with hot rock climbing school The only climbing school doing cliff jumping with a YACHT
