3 out of 5 stars fun start

first thing you see, I was helping a local learn to trad on some moderate routes there. It is well bolted, so no need for trad stuff.

3 out of 5 stars Muppet Show

Ophra was sick, but climbed it anyway. This was her one climb in Thailand. I have found that all routes in Thailand are over-rated (by grade) if compared to the Gunks ratings. So I'd give this one a Gunks 5.6.
