Hi,

What rope length and number of QuickDraws would people recommend for Railay area?

I was thinking of taking a 60m rope and wondering if that's long enough.

Cheers
Giles

60m ok, most routes not that long. I usually take 15 draws which is plenty.

Mankini, friendship bracelet, poise (things you swing around yer head) twirling batton, dreads (optional) a vacant look?

Think that should do it.

don't forget the bongo drums!

I hired a 60m rope and had about half a dozen quick draws, there was plenty of single pitch routes I could do with just that. I didn’t admittedly go to any really high areas though, so double or more qd’s would be wise.

If anyone is stopping in Phnom Penh before heading to Raileh I've got a 60m and 70m rope here I'm looking to punt off. 9.7mm Beal Boosters if I recall correctly.

Might save some baggage allowance for someone.

I've got speedos and can do the vacant look no problem but the dangly bits on my friendship bracelets always get caught in cracks and pockets when climbing so I stopped wearing them and my thinning hair would look dreadful (pun intended) in dreads.

I'll do my best to get twirly things and bongo drums when I'm there.

Thanks all for the help I'll take a 60 and save on the weight of taking an 80.

Giles
