• Climbing...
    Climbing... ... is the activity of using one's hands and feet (or indeed any other part of the body) to ascend a steep object. Climbing might be the oldest form of locomotion of Human Beings since it stems from the arboreal locomotion of our ancestors in the trees. Many of the same principles may be applied to climbing on rock or artificial structures. Nowadays it is done both for recreation (to reach an inaccessible place, or for its own enjoyment), as a sport (see the "competition" section of this site) or as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure. Here we deal with Sport Climbing in which the climber uses quickdraws to clip onto permanent bolts in the rock, and thus clips the rope into each quickdraw as she or he climbs up and with the so called Traditional or Clean climbing in which bolts, nuts, hexes and camming devices are employed and taken from the rock after the ascent (hence "clean"). You find most of the other sub- categories of climbing in the corresponding section of this site.

Koh Tao bouldering

{2jtab: Koh Tao}

Nathan Cando hat mit Koh Tao, adventure bouldering in Thailand die ideale DVD zum sich aus dem dunkelgrauen Mitteleuropaherbst weg träumen vorgelegt. Im Gegensatz zu einigen anderen exotischen Destinationen wie Seychellen oder Virgin Gorda, ist eine Reise nach Thailand auch durchaus erschwinglich! Ein gut gemachter Film mit fittem Kanadisch-Amerikanischen Team bei dem auch einiges an Infos zur Logistic einer solchen Reise rüberkommt!

Zur Abrundung der ganzen Koh Tao Geschichte haben wir unten noch ein ganz besonderes Schmankerl für Euch: Matt Pierson's Videoaufzeichnungen der frühen Bouldertage auf Koh Tao. 1996 kam James March. AKA the Zen Gecko, zum ersten Mal auf die Insel ... (exklusiv  @ www.udini.de)

{2jtab: Zen Gecko}

Laut dem ZenGecko soll Jamson Bay den besten Granit auf der Insel haben, deswegen sind wir am ersten Tag direkt da hin. Aber, was für ein Schock, um, zwischen und über den Blöcken wuchert inzwischen ein Ferienresort. Selten in so merkwürdiger Umgebung gebouldert! Gut drauf sind die burmanesischen Mitarbeiter, die Palmen hochlaufen können, dass einem schwindelig wird und in jeder freien Minute barfuß mitbouldern. Die nächsten Tage haben wir dann selber gesucht und schließlich auch den "Secret Garden" gefunden in dem es teilweise auch nicht so hautzerstörende Griffe gibt. Meistens waren wir morgens bouldern und nachmittags schnorcheln (Koh Tao gilt als mit der beste Tauchgrund Südostasiens!).
