Ofelia’s Hamlet of Rock.  In Taiwan.

  To climb or not to climb……is that really a question? It was on a heated, humid day….in an area quite appropriate to be labeled a Dragon’s home… that my friend and I found ourselves both aching to climb and at the same time jump into the cool, shallow lagoons of relief in Long Dong, […]

Wishing Upon A’Stars: Alpinestars

This article originally appears on my website documenting a motorcyle ride across China (south to north) – and you can go there via here: www.2wheelwriters.com OR just stay here on this site and be updated from time to time. I won’t be updating as thoroughly on the ride. We’ve received two free loaner bikes from […]

Remembering Bev Johnson – One of America’s Greatest Climbers/Adventurers

Let us not forget ‘her’story… Before state-of-the-art camming devices, comfy climbing shoes and harnesses, ergonomic packs, these women paved the road for us the hard way (or I should say fixed the lines for us..). Lately, it’s been Bev Johnson that has been sparking that light of inspiration. Before a lot of us were born, […]

Knight Climbers in Hong Kong

We didn’t even fear the be-nighting….we purposely sought it. My Romanian friend, Cos and I took off on an adventurous night climb.  I can’t even describe what it’s like:  beginning a climb with no light, no clue, no expectation….just simply putting your hand in a hueco and not knowing what you’re going to grab.  A […]

Moonlight Buttress in a Sunlit Fortress

The Afterward Foreword “Now this here is a serious violation of the climbing code.” Ryan stated in a very stern, stoic manner. I furrow my brows in expected dismay toward myself while looking up at my climbing partner analyzing my gear placements in a tight, dihedral formation that hangs 30 feet up and right.  We’re […]

Not “Just” Julia: Germany’s Flatland Phenom!

Not “Just” Julia: Germany’s Flatland Phenom!

BMX.com first blessed me with her name in an article brought about by her latest promo video. As I pressed play to watch Julia Preuss in action for the first time, all I could think of as I watched the ensuing 2-wheeled tricks was, ‘How can anyone NOT be in awe of her?!’. Her creativity […]

Siam Scaler: Dr. Pirapar Is In the House

Born in the “Lone Star State” but also hailing from the country known as the “Land of Smiles” and currently a resident of “Sin City” is an exciting start to introduce climber and boulderer, Pirapar Patamasucon. After meeting her, I felt that each of her environments have given her a piece of who she is […]

Norah Siller: Xicana on her Boulder Nirvana

Norah Siller: Xicana on her Boulder Nirvana

In retrospect of this interview, I had to think more about which part of Norah Siller’s personality was more deserving of recognition. This Las Vegas resident is a dichotomous dame:  she holds the strength of the solid granite that she so gracefully ascends and at the same time, she has a heart as soft and […]

Zion/St. George: Climbing and Riding Photoblog

Riding in the outbacks of Utah. It’s amazing… This state is brimming over in fantastical aesthetics, I can’t get over its beauty. I rode out from Vegas on my bike to meet up and climb with some nice folks. Utah and Zion were both so appropriately named. The name of the state comes from the […]
