Taiwan Rock Trip Sept – Dec 2015

Taiwan Rock trip 2015 Sept2 months in Yosemite and we have many exciting news that has yet to be posted on this page. Just some sneaks for everyone, Qxadventures has the first grade VI participant summiting Mount Watkins in June! Rene from Holland came for a 10 day big wall preparation trip to Taiwan Long Dong in Jan 2015. We did some trad refresher course, big wall technique training and trad multi pitch pitch in Taiwan, while I sent him home with some homework to do between the Taiwan refresher trip till the big walls in Yosemite.

The result, we had a great 12 days in Yosemite climbing various routes including the Snake Dike on Half Dome. The 4 days on Mount Watkins proved to be tiring and mentally draining. As well prepared as Rene can be, climbing that many days with limited water supply and food is a great challenge.
