So much to update! Where do I begin? I’ll start with recently having a full feature article in Rock & Ice Magazine (Issue 186) on our trip to Cuba in spring 2009. The article “For Cuba” was written by the amazing Janet Bergman and will give you a recap on climbing in Cuba, the scene down there, and our adventures- be sure to check it out! It was an incredible trip, except when friend and climber Janet took a huge whip when a hold broke and busted her ankle. Experiencing the medical and hospital situation was one neither of us will forget. But other than that- the country is full of life, color, culture, and so much climbing! But where do I start to share these these images? I’ll start with a few a my favorites that are non climbing related.
Also, I want to thank our sponsors that not only helped us, but also helped the Cuban climbing community as we were able to to leave behind an incredible amount of ropes, harnesses, and other climbing equipment for the climbers down there. The really have no access to any of the above. Be sure to keep these companies in mind when making your next purchase because in our books- they rock. In specific: Mountain Hardwear, Sterling Rope, Julbo, La Sportiva, & Misty Mountain Threadworks.
Angel- local farmer and friend to all. This man had the kindest blue eyes we had ever seen. With them he shared cigars he had made from his own fields, and joined us a few times while cragging next to his tobacco fields.
