Bai He is beautiful scenic area located in northeastern China. For Beijingers, Bai He offers a weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of a city with 11.5 million people. Szu-ting and I taught 2 three day clinics. The training included how to place removable climbing protection, build anchors, lead trad climbs, belay a follower during a multi-pitch climb and many other climbing techniques. The overall goal was to help Chinese climbers transition into climbing traditional (non bolted) rock climbs. We limited the class size to just 4 people to allow the participants time to practice and get individual feedback. In China there are few people or organizations offering similar classes and as a result several of our student flew across China to attended the classes.
Next, a two week trekking and cultural immersion trip in Mongolia
