The Birthday Challenge!

We love climbing, it’s just simple!  I remember after we watched Alex Honnold’s birthday challenge video where he climbs 290 pitches  we got so inspired  and I told  Add ” We should do something like this man! but not the free solo ahh! ” So we decided to do our own birthday challenge and climb 100 pitches each within a day at our home crag in Chiang Mai.

We got up at 4 in the morning just like alpine start , 1 hour drive to the crag and start climbing at 6.30 am. The routes we climbed for this challenge were not harder than 6a+ but the big challenge on this day was to climb 100 pitches under extreme condition,   the temperature was 40 degrees Celsius  and super humid out there . So when we started we weren’t sure that we actually going to make it and that we will survive the heat or not !!

Always dream big and go after your dreams because at the end everything is possible !

Special thanks to our sponsors CMRCA for supporting us all those years and Point6 for the best wool socks ever.

Cheers! Twin boys!
