Davin Bagdonas heads to Qingdao, China for some imperial bouldering!

"The rest of the week is all I've got before a 10 day trip to sun warmed stone. For a few months now I've been in contact with a guy in Qingdao, China. Wangzehn, over the winter, has been trying to get me over there for some bouldering. Originally I had told him this coming fall would be the time, but with an open schedule I will be going to China. Will be there from May 17th through the middle or end of June. Wangzehn found an apartment for me near the climbing and my Visa application went out this morning.


This guy is crazy to get people over to China to climb. I recommended he put pics up online and submit where ever he could. Over the winter he posted on 8a.nu, but just this week Climbing Magazine posted a bunch of good ones on their site. He is super stoked now.
Looks like he has developed a lot of rock over the past decade. Will of course give a full trip report on my return.
On another note, I'm sure you have heard, the Team FiveTen® is an amazing piece of work! I thought the Jet 7 was the best possible shoe made. I was slightly wrong. The Jet 7 now has to share its Gold Medal."
