Access Issue: 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.
A beautiful wall with excellent routes ranging in difficulty. This wall was the first wall bolted by Andrew and Katie, partially funded through a Myanmar Rock Community initiative. The wall is named for the Karaweik Statue marking the left end of the crag. Huge thanks to Climb Tech for giving us a lot of support, CMRCA for teaching us about installing glue-ins, and for Steve Davis and Nyi Nyi Aung Doelone for helping us get a hold of a drill.
When you arrive in the parking lot go past the main entrance to the monastery to another paved lane that leads to the left side of the monastery. Find a path that leads left around the monastery for about 100 meters and the cliff will be on your right. the Karaweik statue marks the left end of the wall, and 'FMA' starts immediately to the right of this statue.
