Hello,
I am heading to Thailand for the month of December and I was wondering if I should bring my gear rack. Is there trad climbing in Thailand?

thanks

From what I understand, webbing or old rope/cord would be good for tieoffs/replacement of tieoffs, but I've never been there so I'm not sure. I'm headed there in Jan and although I'm a diehard trad climber typically, I plan on just bringing the quickdraws....

The Lightner guide did make mention of a couple trad routes. It also said they were sharp, scary and dangerous. Plus, it's pretty much guaranteed that they never get done, so they're probably dirty and overgrown.

But the sport climbing is fantastic! Your best bet is to stick to that while you're there.

Art, I'll be there possibly the last few days you're there. I'm trying to finalize plans. I'll be in Thailand in early Jan, but probably not in the climbing area until at least a week later.

Well my last day in Tonsai will be the 11th as my flight leaves the morning of the 12th.
If there is only a day or two of overlap it'd still be cool hangin out with you. And I can leave my rope with you since I plan on leaving it there when I leave to be used eventually to replace threads on routes.
