Okay, finally arrived in the biggest climbing area of thailand. "wow" dont even half describe this place. the best climbing spots are in raleigh beach from what i hear, so i went down there today to try and get some shoes. didnt have my credit card, so i gotta come back tomorow. also i'm meeting a climber chica who is training for something and needs people to train with. supposedly she climbs 6b, so i wont have to be beaten by a girl in this area (hopefully that is). hopefully i can climb my second 7a here (thats right second gary and paddy ;-)
Oh, also when i arrived at my new accomedation, i was immediatly set upon my a giant preying mantis that i almost stepped on. luckily he saw who he was messin with and decided to fly away.
there are geckos all over this place too, and giant grasshoppers.
your gonna have to wait for photos of this place till i get back home. i've given up on connecting my camera, and i'll have to wait till i get home to upload my camcorder.
the rocks and beaches here are awesome though. the climbing area is surrounded by sea and massive rocks, so the only way to get there is by longboat.
well, i'll let ya's know how i get on with my new climbing partner.
i dont think the shoes here are much cheaper. i'm buying these new yellow velcrow sportiva shoes. dunno the name but i'm sure stu can tell me

Update:
A great day of climbing, swimming, sunbathing and massages. spend a while trying to get this stalagtite problem. eventually got it when the camera was on me. check out the pics.

Update:
Not much to report. Went out with 5 irish girls. got very drunk. Taking it easy today, so no new pictures, but scene as I've finally got the camera working with computers, I've uploaded some photos for the previous trip sections.

Hey mikey, cant wait to see pics of this great climbing area. You should put them on disk when you get back and we'll do a slide show at the wall or something.
