A few years ago, there would be some days when we’d be feeling really down because we could only commit 2-4 hours to climbing, and the crag was just a little too far away. Then we realized that if we just built a bouldering wall, we could still climb every day!
In April of 2004, the construction was finished, and the Chiang Mai Climbing Club was born. C3‘s home is 24 square meters of bouldering bliss, located directly behind the CMRCA shop in central Chiang Mai. We wanted to create a safe, fun, and social atmosphere, where new climbers would feel welcome and pros could get a good workout, so we protected the wall with gymnastics pads, added a finger board and a campus board, and committed to changing routes every day. These days, the wall is where we spend most of our free time, hanging out with friends, introducing new climbers to the sport, and getting a good pump on. We’ve created a space that we really love, and from what we can tell, locals, travelling climbers, and families love it, too.
The Chiang Mai Climbing Club strictly believes in “the more, the merrier,” so come pay us a visit some time, or check out our Community Events Calendar so you can drop in for Ladies Night, Jump Start, or one of a few other special days when you can have a good time and climb for free.

Safe, highly trained, lead climbing experience
I had two days of private guiding and instruction for lead and multi-pitch climbing. I have done it before, but not often enough to feel comfortable going on my own. My guide, Gee, was very thorough and knowledgeable about mountaineering and multi-pitch climbing. He was very safe and he executed proper technique with his anchor and rope settings. While this group costs more than the competitors group, I was able to observe Gee’s technique against the other outfits guides and Gee was much safer and practiced under the Colorado Mountain School (US) standards. On the final day, I was able to complete a 4 pitch climb to the top of Crazy Horse. It was a great two days and I recommend this to those who want to climb and to improve their skills. Thanks CMRCA and Gee!
CMRCA is the best!
I can say that going out to Crazy Horse Was by far one of the highlights of my trip. Ooan was a spectacular guide! We felt safe the entire time. He was knowledgeable and helpful. The Caving was beautiful, challenging(in a good way), and so much fun! I would highly recommend this company and the services they provide!
Safe, professional and fun
Completed the multi-pitch intro with CMRCA at Crazy Horse and had a great time. My instructor, Add Konsingh was excellent at explaining the techniques and giving professional tips on anchors. I learned a lot in a couple of days and had a lot of fun in the process. Crazy Horse is a great location to do a climbing course and CMRCA have great guides.
Intro to Caving was great!
My friend and I (two Americans in our early 30s) took the Intro to Caving class, and it was great. Our group was only three travelers and two guides, Ooan and Bo. Ooan and Bo were very professional and overall very nice guys with a lot of patience. The three of us felt very safe knowing that we were in good hands with the guides and the equipment. What a cool thing to do while in Chiang Mai! The cave was amazing! There a few climbs/repels/walks at the beginning of the cave before the big drop into the main part, which was quite a ways down! (You need to save your energy for the way back up!) Once in the main part of the cave, we ate lunch and took our time exploring the different formations – our adventurous buddy from Germany took a walk with one of the guides through some water to a different part of the cave where she saw millipedes and interesting spiders. Learning and using the equipment was a lot of fun. Be prepared to get a massage afterwards!
“fun adventure, great company”
My caving trip with CMRCA was the best thing I did in Chiang Mai! The trip was well- organized, and allows you to see some incredible sights deep in the earth. Cannot say enough about the staff; the trip is led warm, knowledgable and safety oriented instructors who are passionate about the sport. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone, especially those who concerned with spending their money with companies who are socially and environmentally responsible- as this is a far departure from your regular tourist operation. Definitely worth checking out!!
