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.
Starts with the same start and first two bolts of 'Golden Ridge Recollection', before turning right and climbing up the right face of the dihedral using face holds and the arete. Like 'Golden Ridge' the starting boulder problem is height dependent, and is also the crux. If you are short, the boulder problem at the base is probably 5.10d/5.11a. (6b+/6c) If you are tall and can reach the upper holds, or if you can jump to the jug, the route is about 5.10a (6a). If you just want to climb a 6a, you can step up on the tree next to the route to skip the bottom boulder. After the bottom boulder, climb a slab, pull through a bulge, and cruise up the amazing exposed face and arete on perfect jugs.
Shares the start and first couple of bolts with 'Golden Ridge Recollection' and 'Monet's Rising Sun.' The start is in front of a small cave overhang towards the middle of Karaweik Wall. The Route is number 10 on the Karaweik Wall Right topo photo. After you clip the first three bolts head right onto the dihedral wall and arete.
