Limestone close to Wuhan, China

Posted on September 27, 2011 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

Great climbing 2 hours south of Wuhan, China. In Xianning at the Guishan reservoir. Single pitch sport climbs up to 33 meters on limestone in the mountains and shade all day. Maximum difficulty is 5.13a/b with several 5.10s to 5.12s. Great hot springs also.

Hey John, Very nice to hear from you! Poland sounds great! I've been traveling for almost a year now and just spent the last six months in Yangshuo, China climbing. It's been great to get back into climbing again! I would love to meet you over the holidays to climb, but I will not be in Europe then I'll still be in Vietnam or Indonesia....However, my husband, Fred and I are moving to Europe next summer! We are hoping to move to France!!! Hopefully you'll still be in Europe so we can climb together again!!
Best of luck in Poland, Cheers, -Kre

Giuliano Cameroni: strong fingers, a kind mother, 16 years old ...

Posted by 9b on February 13, 2014 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

... and a future of hard boulders and (short) routes !

 

 

 

 

35 minutes.

This is the driving distance between Giuliano's house and the closiest boulders.

Not so bad.

The only problem is that when you are 16 years old, You can't drive the car.

No worries, if you have a kind mother, problem is solved  :-)

She drives him to the rocks, so he can climb something like this, then, after bouldering, he takes the train to come back home.

 

Ciao Giuliano,

how are you so strong ?! How much do you train ?

CIAO :-)

I CLIMB ON BOULDERS ABOUT 4 TIMES A WEEK, ON PLASTIC NOT SO MUCH, WHEN IT RAINS

 

Where do you climb usually ?

I CLIMB IN TICINO, MAGIC WOOD, SUSTEN, ... SOMETIMES IN FONT AND DURING THE HOLIDAYS OUT OF EUROPE TOO.

 

Who are your bouldering friends ?

I CLIMB WITH FRIENDS FROM TICINO AND WALLIS. SOMETIMES WITH MY FATHER AND MY BROTHER.

 

 

How is Giuliano Cameroni as a climber…
