James Pearson and caroline Ciavaldini, currently on tour in south east Asia, have relocated from Laos to Thailand. Apparently Thai climbing isn't limited to Railey in case you were under that assumption.
James' latest blog post is about riding hair dryers and exploring big caves, flashing an 8b, Gross Slame, in the process. One of the caves is fairly big and "...makes Grande grotte look like Ben's roof at Ravens Tor!"
Should be enough to keep them busy for a couple of weeks then!
