Koh Yao Noi – Thailand
Photos by Gerhard Schaar The island of Koh Yao Noi is a one hour longtail boat ride from the climbing mecca of Krabi. As you cruise around the two by seven mile island on a scooter you’ll notice everything goes a bit slower here, food and accommodations are affordable, everyone is more relaxed, and “sabai-sabai” is the motto here. About 100 routes are are spread out over six areas and the climbing has lots of tufas and pockets. A majority of the climbs have been established by locals of Phra Nang Beach and veteran Mark Miner.
