Description

Named after Steve Brian, this is the first wall with established sport routes in Myanmar. A tall vertical wall with 6 routes of mostly moderate difficulty. The wall is close to the road so be careful of speeding motorbikes and large trucks that occasionally pass.

NOTE: Almost all of the routes at Waterfall Hill are missing the hangers off of the first couple of bolts. Make sure to bring a couple of hangers or borrow some from TCCM if you are planning to climb here.

UPDATE: (01/16) I have now replaced most of the missing hangers with plated steel hangers. These will not last as long as the other stainless steel hangers, and should be replaced when they start to wear. There are still some routes without the first couple of hangers.
Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks contact Technical Climbing Club Myanmar (TCCM) for more information Details

Getting There

From the Waterfall Hill Monastery, follow the road past a few small pagodas and the tea shop (on the left). Continue on the road past the massive Fire Wall (on your right) continue around the corner for another couple of hundred yards and you will reach Steve Wall. It is right on the road on the right side.
