Our guide Sarut was amazing. Safe. Friendly. Knowledgeable. And sense of humor! I've climbed before but 2 other girls had not and they were able to climb quite high with confidence. Tge scenery can't be matched and the swimming afterwards is a huge bonus!

I've never climbed and if it wasn't for our guide, Sarut, I don't know if I would have completed 3 for my first time. Sarut from Hot Rocks gave us the confidence and the guidance we needed to climb some of the most beautiful rocks I've ever seen. My friend who wasn't a beginner, climbed incredibly high with his guidance... More

There are several rock climbing companies on Railay. Hot Rocks is located on the East side of Railay, which isn't far from the West side. You can easily walk between the two sides in a couple of minutes. Apparently, Hot Rocks is the main company that does DWS. If you sign up with another company they contract out to Hot... More

This review is more on Railay as a rock climbing area than Railay Rock Climbing Shop. The latter does offer full gear rental for 2 persons for 1300 baht (NZ$46) for the day which may be considered a little pricey when you can rent pretty much the same gear except rope and quickness for less than $20 at a Wellinton...

My first attempt to rock climbing and I know I have to try it when I'm in Krabi! My verdict - I'll come back for more!!I booked directly with Hot Rocks Climbing School and they are very professional yet knowledgable about the art of rock climbing. Owned by a Thai, Luang and his wife, Sara Lisa, Swedish, Hot Rocks cater... More

Having only climbed in an indoor rock gym, I thought it was time to try the real thing. And what better place to do it than in Railay. The guys at Railay Rock were super mellow, friendly, informative and no hard sell. I signed up for a morning 1/2 day and turned out to be the only student. After a... More

Entrusting my 12-year-old daughter to anyone for her first ever climbing could have been terrifying. But not with this company, who were fantastic from start to finish. I reckon she's got the bug now, and that's largely due to how great her experience was with Railay Rock Climbing Shop. Awesome!

If you want to do a deep water solo, do it with Hot Rocks. They have a beautiful sail boat, provide shoes, and charge the same (I think) as folks who take you out in noisy cramped longtails and have you climb without shoes. Lounging on pillows on the deck of their boat was almost as fun as the climbing.... More
