Phi Phi has more routes in the lower grades than Railay & Tonsai. There are currently 61 rebolted routes of which 21 routes are grade 6a or lower and 8 routes are graded 6b. On Ton Sai Tower, there are 22 routes graded 6b or lower. A must-do multi-pitch climb is Happy Banana (6c) on Hin Tak wall, very exposed climbing in a great location, this route is equipped with glue-in bolts. Harder climbing routes are found on Drinking wall, on which all routes were rebolted in 2005.

Phi Phi has recovered so well from the tsunami that it is yet again inundated by tourists every high season. Many climbers won't like the night-time noise or the high prices on Phi Phi, click here for more information on Phi Phi.


Birthplace of Thai Climbing

Koh Phi Phi is the birthplace of rock climbing in Thailand. The first rock climbers came here in the 1980s to open new rock climbing routes. However, being in love with Thai limestone is still far from understanding Thai limestone. On Koh Phi Phi all rock climbing routes were developed with regular expansion bolts. The bolts rotted so fast and so badly that climbers avoided Koh Phi Phi altogether for many years. After Railey continued to be developed with stainless steel bolts, rock climbing became marginalised on Phi Phi. This changed in the year 2000 as a group of climbers started to rebolt old routes on Phi Phi and to open up new climbs as well. Some areas have not seen any rebolting. Do not rock climb on any routes that have not been rebolted.
