South Africa Part Two - Andrew Baldwin

South Africa Part Two - Andrew Baldwin
September 04, 2014 - 

Right after we got back from out trip to the Welgevonden game reserve Madeline and I were now on our own, heading to the climbing destination. Driving on the other side of the road and trying to find our way to Waterval Boven. It was three hours east of Johannesburg. Nothing too interesting along the way. More insight of South African life and rolling hills. I started to wonder if there was even any climbing out here. We entered the town and eventually found our way to Roc and Rope's Adventure. We met Alex and Gus who are incredibly...

In the summer of 2013, with no real clue what I was I store for, I got onto a plane, only to later pass out on that same plane, land, and then (after a series of a few more unfortunate events) begin one of the best climbing adventures of my life. 

Silk Road Adventures - Bernd Zangerl

Silk Road Adventures - Bernd Zangerl
November 23, 2013 - 

The ancient Silk Road was the means of transportation for goods from India and China to Europe. Vice versa, I wanted to transport my crashpads from Flirsch to India along this road.Of course, spotting potential boulder areas is always on my mind, but equally important on this trip was to experience the lives of the Central Asian people and the wealthy history of the region. To travel with two crashpads and a heavy backpack through regions of the world where no one has ever heard of bouldering brings its own advantages: wherever I went people were curious to know...

Mallorca Final Week - Andrew Baldwin

Mallorca Final Week - Andrew Baldwin
September 12, 2013 - 

Wednesday July 24th - Preparations are Being MadeI awoke to the sun beating down on my face through the window. There was silence throughout the house. No sounds of Alison making coffee and no sounds of Felix narrating his life. It was just Madeline and I. As sad as it was to have them both gone, It was nice to have a quite house. Maddy soon woke up after me and we went to make breakfast. With the smell of bacon cooking in the air, I sat at the kitchen table eating toast with my eyes deep in the...

Mallorca Week Three, Part Two - Andrew Baldwin
August 18, 2013 - 

Thursday July 18th - Hard work pays off We awoke to yet another gorgeous day here. The wind was blowing, the birds were chirping, and the guidebook is sitting out on the table. Time was starting to run out for our friends Alison and Felix. In less than a week they would be leaving and headed back to the states. We had to start picking wisely the places to which we would be going for these next few days. We wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to do what they had in mind for the remainder of...

Mallorca Week Three, Part One - Andrew Baldwin
July 24, 2013 - 

Sunday July 14th - Back to Puig de Garrafa.Week three. We were starting to get accustomed to this lifestyle. It was all I’ve ever wanted. Living in a small home with good friends, eating amazing food, and spending our days climbing. I could do this for a while. Two weeks were behind us though and as much as we hated the idea of it, time was moving fast. We were basically halfway through our trip already. It was time to get moving.Over our typical bountiful breakfast of toast and yogurt, we talked about where we’d go for the day....
