DescriptionThis 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.
Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks Details
This climbing area is intertwined with monasteries and pagodas. It is critical for climbing in Myanmar to maintain these relationships through respectful conduct with the monks and the surrounding areas. Please be modest, respectful, friendly, and responsive to the wishes of the monks and local people. Do not climb on religious monuments, and remove shoes when crossing over established pagoda areas.
Getting ThereWalk 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.
