Premier Post - Vietnam 2014 expedition needs more climbers.

An expedition set to depart for Vietnam in April 2014 is looking for climbers to join it.

In 2012 seven climbers went to Ha Long Bay in search of unclimbed rock. 2-weeks later they had 103 new routes, and numerous stories of adventure and daring do under their belts. Now hungry for more they are looking to return but are in need of more members.

On this sea-based expedition you will be sleeping, eating and resting on board the "Mother Ship". Sea kayaks and a basket boat will be used to explore the vast amount of unclimbed rock jutting out of the tropical waters. You will be developing what has to be one of the world's best deep water soloing destinations.

The team is limited to only 12 people, so if you want to know more then do not hesitate to contact me.

I can vouch for the fact that this will be an incredible trip. Dave's a top guy too, and he's not even paying me to say this.

What business is that of yours?

In reply to Simon_Sheff: that's just plain bitter. Clearly it's a business, but it's being marketed as simply a cool trip with an atmosphere of 'we're all in it together'. Which is exactly how it should be. I say great advert. It's probably the best 890 most people would ever spend.

Haven't been on this trip in particular, but I have been to Ha Long Bay and it is simply amazing. As is the rest of Vietnam. Wish I could go!

Many thanks for your positive comments. When I am asked what grade should someone be climbing to come on an expedition I always say that the grade you climb is always less important then having common sense and a drive for adventure. That being said on this trip if you are climbing French 6b+ then there is lots of climbing to be done. If you are climbing 7a/b then you will be spoilt for choice and have endless projects to climb.

I have put together a PDF that you can download that gives the ins and outs of the expedition. You can find the link at the base of the following post:

If you have any more questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.

I went on this trip and it was one of the best climbing trips I have ever been on. (I have been on some pretty good trips over the years)
The guys on the trip were top company! and Dave's organisation skills are extremely high. An awesome trip!
