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.
Amazing line that ascends the blank face between the dihedrals of Elephant Leather and Sensei. Consistent vertical pulls to a ridiculous high step, then a good rest before the crux which involves moving right below the 4th bolt on a series of crimps and pinches with nonexistent feet until you snag a jug and continue up on more fun edges to a easy roof pull and the anchors. Looking forward to hearing what people think about the grade.
