Luca De Giorgi and Asia Outdoors have put together the most comprehensive climbing guidebook to the Ha Long Bay area in Vietnam to date. They have done a great job and we hope that this guide will help to make this gem of a deep water soloing and climbing destination better known to the climbing community. This place definitely deserves it!
We are very happy to have been able to contribute to this guidebook. The two DWS expeditions that Dave Lucas and The Expedition Consultancy have so far organised to the Halong Bay and Cat Ba area have resulted in nearly 200 new routes! We plan to keep bringing new groups in to make sure this figure will just keep rising.
And once you get your copy, have a look at the Acknowledgements page where we just happen to be described as pioneers of the Halong Bay climbing along side such legends as Lynn Hill, Tim Emmett, Neil Gresham, Todd Sinner, Greg Child ;D.
