Leading that thing without a helmet looks like a disaster waiting to happen!

There are definitely a few chimneys at the crag made a little spicy without a helmet. This climb however is very well bolted so fortunately any tumble shouldn't be accompanied by pin balling back down the chimney. However, as most sport, if not all, climbers on holiday rarely find space in a pack for a helmet; our local rock shop (CMRCA) will lend anyone a helmet who drops in.

I didn't even notice that the crack was bolted. Is there any trad climbing in Thailand?

that's got to be the most bizarre chimney "technique" I've ever seen

More bolts, that seems like a waste of a nice crack, IMO!
Still, it does looks kinda fun.

It looks like a lot of fun. Is it really a 5.10b? It doesn't look that hard in the photo.

It is if you climb it like that.

RE: bolts, that's limestone. Rarely does one see gear lines on limestone, and for good reasons.
