Thailand-Phi Phi Don-Drinking Wall (Day 32)

Well it has officially been a month since we said far well to Boulder,our van, and most all of our stuff.  Having so far seen so much family, friends, and loved ones we are not homesick one bit.  Wonder how it will feel a month from now?
We headed up to drinking wall on Phi Phi Don.  It is home of of the harder climbing on Phi Phi and we were curious about the challenge and to push the grade some.
We climbed five routes at Drinking Wall: Luis Trinker 5.11b/c, Osapft Is 5.10d, Prost Mahlzeit 5.10b/c, Appetizer 5.10b, and Snapper 5.10-
Me on Appetizer 5.10b
Ram was having a high energy day so he sat out the next three climbs.
Me on Osapft Is 5.10d.  I really enjoyed this route. 
I wanted to do a few more easy climbs before we started pushing and we got on Prost Mahlzeit 5.10b/c.
We also got on Snapper 5.10-, it had a hard pull at the start but then was really cruiser and kind of uninteresting for Thailand.
Anja and Ram had to combine efforts to get up Luis Trinker 5.11b/c.  It was really steep at the start and then moved to more vertical but runout ground.
After the super steep stuff there was a big ledge to rest on so I took the rest before heading off toward the giant beehive near the anchor.
