Access Issue: Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks Details

Description

Fire Wall is home to a good number of climbs that vary in style and length. All of these routes were bolted by Tyler Hoffart and Winko. The rock at Fire Wall is still cleaning up and it is highly advised to wear a helmet while climbing, belaying, or if someone else is climbing. Generally speaking, the rock on the shorter routes of the left side of the wall is more solid than any of the routes that go to the top of the wall.

NOTE: Many of the routes at Waterfall Hill are missing the hangers off of the first couple of bolts. You can either bring a couple of hangers and nuts for 3/8" bolts, or fashion a long stick clip once you arrive.

Getting There

Walk up the road from the monastery, pass the tea house (on your left) and you will see the massive, red Fire Wall on the right side of the road. Cross a bridge on the right side of the road walk up about 50 yards and look for a faint trail on your left. This trail leads you through the woods a short ways to the base of the cliff.
For Fire Wall, Monk's Life Wall, and Steve Wall, continue up the road. For Training Wall, go up the stairs across from the monastery.
Turn right and cross the bridge for Fire Wall and Steve Wall.

[Hide Comment] Just a heads up, we saw a rattlesnake skin (pretty sure, although we didn't know those hung out around here) on the rock at the bottom of the Firefly Project on May 2nd, 2015. Keep your eyes peeled, and be careful! May 4, 2015
