Ethan and Keller climb some of the best and hardest lines in Yangshuo, China. After months of preparation and anticipation, Ethan Pringle and I are finally in China. Two flights, three buses, a taxi ride, and 50 total hours of travel have brought us to the foot of these extra-terrestrial limestone towers.
After everything that could possibly go wrong does and you still have a successful event, well that would be the story of the Wet Dreams and HAYMAKER tour. We have been the largest sh#t show in the business, no doubt, but still were able to generate $400 for our boy Grant Korgan. Grant recently did his first sit up in over 7 months, this is a huge feat and all us Shasta Boyz congratulate you one your achievement. KEEP CHARGIN. This tour finale is one to go down in the history books and also a very worthy tale. ...
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I can't believe it's December already - my exams start next week! That means more studying and less climbing. I'll be getting out Saturday though, for the third leg of the Triple Crown - Stone Fort. The weather is looking good and I'm looking forward to hanging out with everyone.
Last sunday I organized the projection of the movie I made with the footage of my trip to South Africa. 5 friends enjoying the super quality rock that Rocklands have to offer in some of the nicest scenery you'll see! I think the event was a great success overall and I'm very happy! Pretty much everything went alright and around 75 to 80 climbers and non-climbers were there to enjoy! A lot more people than I thought! :)
It’s 8:15 AM here in Yangshuo, but I’ve been up for hours. I woke at around 3, tossed and turned for an hour or two, then resigned to the jetlag. Today will be my first climbing day of the trip and I’m anxious to get out on the rock, after about a week off climbing and traveling for more or less the past 4 days straight.
