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 short route on the far left of the wall next to the Karaweik. Named for the inconsistent standards and assumptions that come with the term first female ascent. BETA: A slab leads to an overhang which leads to the crux. Fire straight up using a heel hook or head right for an easier variation.
Far left route at Karaweik Wall. #1 on the Karaweik Wall Left Topo Photo. Starts on the slab below the Karaweik, anchors are visible from the ground.
