Description Suggestion
CLIMBING AT THE MONK WALL IS EXTREMELLY DANGEROUS DUE TO LOOSE ROCK, DEFINITELY NOT WORTHTHE RISK, PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN THIS CRAG.

Mandalay is a quiet, mid-sized city shoulder to shoulder with limestone hills east of town. Mandalay is the home of Myanmar's first sport climbing at Waterfall Hill (Yaedagon Taung). Steve Davis initiated the first bolting effort and established the earliest routes on what is now known as Steve Wall. From what I understand, his efforts catalyzed the creation of the Technical Climbing Cub Myanmar (TCCM). Steve then brought Tyler Hoffart who finished bolting Steve Wall and bolted the entirety of Fire Wall and Monk's Life Wall with Winko.

There are several hostels to choose from in Mandalay for varying price ranges. You can use taxis or rent a motorbike or bicycle to transport yourself around. Motorbike cost from 8,000MMK to 15,000MMK (1USD is 1,000MMK) per day, and they can be rented at many of the hostels.

If you have a bigger party, you can rent a truck or van at the bus station. A day trip to Waterfall Hill and back should cost you around 30,000 MMK.
