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. 

Mallorca Week Three, Part One - Andrew Baldwin

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....

This first week in Mallorca has been perfect. The scenery, culture, food, wine and climbing are incredible. I've climbed some of the best routes ever and drank some of the best wine ever. This place is absolutely beautiful. Paradise. I can't wait to see what week two holds for me. I still have a lot I want to see and do.

Our Journey to Mallorca was less than stellar... Sunday 1:00pm My girlfriend (Maddy) and I checked in for our first flight out of Detroit Metro airport. Check in was ok, as was security except my wonderful girl friend (who I love so much) lost my water bottle…oh well. After we got through security we had plenty of time before our flight. Our flight to Chicago was delayed in order to fix the mechanism that supplies oxygen to the cockpit. I guess that’s important. We also had to gate check our bags because the plane was...

Start of a Dream Trip - Andrew Baldwin

Start of a Dream Trip - Andrew Baldwin
July 01, 2013 - 

Finally leaving for Mallorca, Spain today! After 5 months of planning and preparation this trip has finally become a reality. I ordered the guide book more then two months ago now and have been pouring over it ever since. I found more then enough climbing to keep us busy for the month. Not only is Mallorca a hot spot for deep water soloing but the amount of world class sport climbing took me by surprise. Alaro's tufa encrusted limestone walls immediately struck my intrest. There you can find some of the best tufa lines in the world. They offer...
