Jack, is that norway pic at the bottom meant to be in there?
Thanks. Jack's not up yet but that was one of his 'holding' photos for layout. Now gone.
Great to see hard routes being being crushed in my homeland! For sure Venezuela IS the Lost World... and for many more reasons than a couple of spiders or boas hanging around in the jungle. The potential for new routes is endless.
What is also amazing about the news is that Glowacz and Heuber completed a standing project from the late Kurt Albert, rocking hard at 8b!
I'm sorry about this second post, but in English it should be spelled Roraima Tepui, as it is a single mountain.
These table-top mountains are called tepuyes by the Pemon community, who consider them as the home of their gods.
Arran went to 'Auyan-Tepuy' and Sharma went bouldering to 'Kukenan Tepuy'.
Just thought I'd throw that in there. The climb is awe inspiring and like one of the most enchanting but intense places to climb. Props to these two rippers
