Our fifth Lead Now episode is finally here! In this episode you’ll meet Ting, the strongest local lady in Yangshuo. Ting and her boyfriend Abond are not only motivated to climb and try hard, but also keep things light and fun at the crag and around town. While in China we all made dumplings, launched fireworks, rode scooters, and feasted on some pretty weird foods (like sour fish head soup). I definitely miss my new friends in Yangshuo and all the incredible rock to climb in the area. Below, learn more about our time in China, our fundraiser for Colorado flood victims through Foothills United Way, and watch Ting and me climb Single Life (5.13b) China Climb (5.14b), respectively. Video of my ascent of Sea of Tranquility (5.14a) at Moon Hill will be part of our feature length video released…in the longterm future.
To learn more about the Foothills United Way Flood Relief Fund see the second video below. This short video includes some pretty devastating footage of the flood’s devastation and information about what you can do to help the continued recovery efforts.
