The idea was to gather some nice point of view from a beginner perspective, eventually his words turned to be very inspiring.

Climbing in Chong Plee - Fundraising Project to bolt new routes!

A few days ago talking with a good friend of mine we kind of realized that nowadays many climbers have a very little knowledge of climbing ethics, climbing rules, history of climbing, bolting technics or mere financial costs behind the development of a new climbing area.

Despite what some people might think, equipped climbing spots are not gifts of an invisible god, and they do not grow up naturally, instead there is a lot of work, passion, research, and financial efforts often undertaken individually by a restricted number of independent climbing developers.

Bouldering in Phuket - Granite boulders ready to be cleaned up!

As everybody can easily realize, Phuket has a great abundance of hills mostly located around the area of Kathu and all across the west cost of the island.

In some of them many tourist companies are organizing elephant camps, others have been equipped with zip lines or other adventurous activities, however the majority of them are still partially unexplored both because of their steep profiles but also because of their inaccessible and lavish vegetation.

 A few weeks ago I had the occasion to join a famous zip line program, the experience was really amazing, but even more amazing was the fact that the entire area is immersed in the deep jungle and populated by a number of big granite boulders.
