Climbing in Koh Tao is always done on granite and as such the bolting methods on Koh Tao are slightly different to the limestone climbing found elsewhere. Climbers use Petzl 12mm climbing bolts and hangers on strong tested granite. They keep 3 point leading rope anchors and each and every single bolt date is recorded on a database and checked annually. Safety if priority on Koh Tao!
Koh Tao is also a mecca for bouldering. Massive granite boulders litter the landscape. They are really tough to make your way up and over and calls for good balance, hard hands and good footwork. Don’t worry if you have never tried this before as there are plenty of beginner taster sessions and courses available.
