Railay Rock Climbing

Railay Beach is world renowned for its amazing rock climbing. We did an afternoon guided session where we climbed several routes on the beginners' 1-2-3 Wall. It was hard work, especially because it was so hot, but the sense of accomplishment (and the view) upon reaching the top each time was worth it. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day...enjoy!

I like the longtail boat in the background of this one.

Zack was a lot faster than me at reaching the top of the routes.

I look flexible in this picture; it's a complete illusion!

Yes, we climbed quite high!
Sweaty, happy Zack.

I really like this shot of Zack belaying me while I climbed.


  1. That looks like so much fun, but I am sure it was super difficult! Do fun things like this closer to me so I can copy your trips :)

    1. It was difficult, because it was so hot and our palms kept sweating no matter how much chalk we used! I wish you all could come visit again.
