Katie trying 'Slab Python'

Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks contact Technical Climbing Club Myanmar (TCCM) for more information MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An excellent bouldery beginning leads to an uninspiring, wandering, slab finish. The wandering finish was the original end of "Saya Steve." Tyler Hoffart added a direct start to create what I have called "Slab Python."

Location 

Rightmost route on the wall, number 6 on the Steve Wall topo.

Protection 

Bolts, carabiner anchors.

I really enjoyed the beginning and ending of this route! Although it does get wandery, it kind of has an awesome Indiana Jones feel to it. :) If you're on the short side, the clip at the second bolt might be a bit of a reach..especially if the draw isn't already hung.

I only remember the beginning and wishing it went on for another 80 ft like that. I'm glad Katie at least enjoyed it! ; )

Haha Tyler, I know what you mean! That's how I feel about those left-side routes on Fire Wall. The ones that go through the black rock at the start...so so good!
