Try your hand at free soloing over Jong Island and the archipelago emerald waters in this unique discipline of rock climbing! Enjoy a short cruise into the bay’s island labyrinth, where a small boat will transfer you to our DWS crags. Then, chalk up and get personal with the limestone. Your guide will show you developed routes and safely spot you. Climb from the boat onto the rock face, grab hold of big pockets, work up tufa systems and traverse finely featured limestone. Push your limits to climb higher before jumping from the cliff into the water. It’s a thrilling, adrenaline-pumping experience!
Refuel with a snack and drinks bring by our crew on our speed boat. Relax at while we cruise to a new location for the next climbing spot, then hit the crags again for some harder climbing before heading home.
Typical route grades range from F5b to 7c/ YDS 5.8 to 5.12c. Since our DWS crags are undercut by natural erosion, route difficulty depends partially on tides. A boulder start is required to begin climbing during low tides.
*All deep water solo routes have been developed by experienced rock climbers in areas safe for climbing. 69degreenorth is the only tour operator in Langkawi Island licensed to deep water solo.
