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.
Similar to its neighbor ('Snake Hickey'), Bite the Bullet starts relatively easy before hitting a two-bolt crux mid route. The crux is brilliant, using an unlikely pinch and a left-hand gaston. Once you get to the huge jug lip, it's pretty much over.
2nd from the left on Alamo Wall, number 2 in the Alamo Wall topo photo, the route starts on a big tufa feature.
