last few from Tonsai

A day after touching down in Tonsai and David's on the sharp end. 

on one of my favorite multipitches in Tonsai, a route called Musang, 5 pitches of fun going at 6a, 7a, 6b, 7a, 6b. 

l love this photo, I can tell that I'm smiling and so psyched about this climb. 

we rapped off in time to catch our first sunset with no clouds, a perfect way to end the day.

After failing to get on 'The Best Route in Minnesota' (because of the understandably long line), we headed to the other side of Phra Nang Beach, finding this secluded place to climb and watch the sun light up the rock behind us.

this is a happy Rolf

David's first time deep water soloing was pretty badass. Moving from the wall to the stalactite, he scrambled over some pretty sketchy, chossy rock before jumping in. 

this is another happy Rolf

Deep water soloing

What do you do when you get a traffic jam on a multipitch route? 
A) help the other climbers get their rope unstuck
B) dread each others hair
C) invite them deep water soloing the next day
D) all of the above

We met a rag tag group of climbers on a multipitch climb the other day, who not only got our rope thrice unstuck, they dreaded each others hair while waiting, grabbed a beer with us after and took us DWS the next day. They are from France, Austria, Australia and the US, absolutely hilarious, wear badass tights while climbing and remind us of our friends back home.
