Rock climbing in high season - how busy is it?

by pawelx Online Now Jun 4, 2008 at 2:57 AM

Hi, I was thinking of coming to Krabi for climbing (Railay or Tonsai, don't know yet) for New Year (Dec'07 to Jan'08), but I am hearing it is super-busy, there are lots of people trying to get on routes and that often, you have to wait very long to climb a route. In particular, the easier ones (F5-F6b). Is that true? Is queuing really annoying? For example, if I arrive in the afternoon on an average nice F6a route, should I expect to wait very long to climb it? Or not wait at all? I know that there are hundreds of routes, but I am not sure of the numbers of people who go there every year, especially at the busiest period (around New Year), which is when I am planning to go..

Thanks a lot
