Come back home! ;-)

We made it back home and we are recovering our "chill and normal life"...like our friend Corey says: "now we'll need holidays to rest from these holidays" because this last parte of the travel has been a little bit stressful. It's true that Yangshuo is a really beautiful place but It's a very famous place in China for tourism too so if you want to enjoy of silence and peacefulness of the nature it's not a best place... It's China!! ;-) Besides that we have enjoyed high quality climbing and the very good people (american team, fanatic chinese climbers and the spanish team Andrea y Carlos).. We felt at home in the Rock'n Grill hotel and the beers in China Climb really good! Also Mike Call and Boone Speed were with us in this chinese adventure to film and to take really nice photos. You can see it in his website momentumvm.com  and Boonespeed.com ;-)

Also you can see some nice footage on momentumvm.com from Mike Call... thanks dude! Furthermore, Chris bolted a new project in Lei Pi Shan "Angry Chimp" ?? nice work! now he has something to do because his project in White Mountain is totally wet! and Corey has to do his project too! C'mon guys!

Asian Tour: China

                 Climbing in Moon Hill. Photo: Mike Call

We went to the famous arch "Moon Hill" the last few days and this place is really beautiful! You can see all green mountains, the villages and hot air baloons... it's a special place. Also you can climb some really nice routes right here.. yeah! I have a proyect! we'll see the next raining days... 
Chris has a nice proyect too, the last day he bolted some hard proyects: "Spicy noodle"8c that he did yesterday and "Pump Dumpling" 9a+ hehe nice dude!! Also the last day he did the hardest route here "American Gangster" 8c without the chipped hold that the french climber Mikel Fuselier did, so the route has a new system now and new name too because the locals want to change it and call it: "French Gangster" (I thinks the locals aren't very happy with the chipped hold...)
