BETA PHOTO: Cyrille on the FA of Wounds and Wins

Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks. MORE INFO >>>


First route that was established in Hpa-An by TCCM. A short, hard, excellent line on hard stone using tufas and edges to reach the anchors. Cyrille got the first ascent and bolted the line to the left 'Union Flake' that also finishes on the Wounds and Wins anchor.


4 bolts shares a 2 ring anchor with 'Wounds and Wins' Bolted on 05/15 with Stainless Steel expansion bolts.

I helped bolt this line. Got to see Cyrille get the FA on his last day in Myanmar. Cyrille named it in reference to the previous day when we hiked and climbed through heinous class 4 and 5 jungle, getting bitten by fire ants and mosquitoes, to set up a line to bolt routes at a different site. In the effort to set the line, Cyrille cut some deep gashes in his forearm. Although, we did succeed in setting up a line, the team on the ground never ended up getting any bolts in the wall. We ended up bailing on the whole effort. It was great to recover from the lost effort of the day before and put up a line in Hpa-An.

Also, I thought that Wounds and Wins felt as hard as many of the 5.12as I've climbed, but I was really exhausted from the bolting effort by the time I sent. I'm curious to see what other opinions are. We'll call it 11d for now.

I definitely have to do a little jump off the rock at the bottom to catch the starting jug hold! Would love to see what other climbers do at the start.
