Description

This is the massive wall to the right of Fire Wall. Currently all three of the routes on this wall are 2-pitch climbs put up by Tyler Hoffart. As of Jan. 2018, one of these routes 'Homage' is still a project. Tyler also placed the Buddha statue that you can see high up on the wall. If you would like to read the harrowing account of how he got it up there, check out the blog he kept to record his bolting venture in Myanmar: goldenlandproject.tumblr.com/

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 main Waterfall Hill 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 the path until you get to a fork near the top. Turn left at the fork and follow the path up some more stairs until you reach the base of the wall. Follow the wall to the left for about 50 yards and you will reach the Monk's Life climbs.
Follow the road up as if you were going to Fire Wall.
Turn right on the bridge and follow the path until it forks, after about a hundred yards, at the top of the hill.
Turn left when the path forks.
Take this final set of stairs and follow the wall left until you see bolts.

If you climb to the base of these routes by the stairs, be sure to remove your shoes as you pass through the pagodas along the base of the crag.

Wear a helmet at the base of these routes. Loose rock comes down on every other climb, and there's no place to run to. It's not just about your head--it's about ongoing access to the site. Jun 24, 2015
