Kick start into 2015!

2014 was an awesome year. I want to thank everyone who have made it such a great year! Especially those who have came for our courses and guided trips in China, Thailand, Taiwan and US. It was great to share climbing knowledge and instructions with you. Moving into 2015 we have many new developments coming up!

Taiwan Trips updates

We have a new ride in Taiwan meaning we can take more people in each course per trip! Our new 小白 takes up to 6 passenger making our meal runs much more pleasant! Accommodation – we are no longer using the Long Dong homestay for the comfort of our participant’s comfort. Instead we have a new climber’s hostel operated by Qxadventures for climbers right next to the village of Long Dong, which is 2km from school gate. The hostel will be undergoing renovation works and projected to be ready in mid March. Stay tune for more updates!

Yosemite Rock Trip

This year is an exciting year to Yosemite for us as we are having the first participant who wants to climb Half Dome via the North West regular route! We are also happy that Yosemite Rock trip is running for the 3rd year in a row. I hope more and more climbers are interested in big climbs like these be it big wall climbing or long multi pitch.

This year, I have my eyes set on climbing Rostrum, a feature which I’ve always drove pass but never touched just because a friend told me that given our climbing standards I will never be able to climb it. It will also be good to knock off another El Cap route and hopefully free climb most of it. While all these are in place our camp chief, Miss Kelly Khiew, is busy learning how to dish out more delicious asian cruisine at the campsite! Looking forward for a larger ice box!
