Untamed Lands: Multi-tool & multi-sport adventures
The story of three very different trips in 2019. Sometimes in life you don’t know how things are going to unfold, you just have to say yes. To me that is one of the most beautiful things in life, the unknown. New opportunities, challenges, hopes and dreams, breaking the path of routine and making dreams come true. 2019 was truly one of those magical years of opportunities.
First up; working on a community climbing project on the remote island of Makatea, a climbing paradise of limestone and turquoise waters. Working with an amazing cast of world class climbing athletes and the incredible local community of Makatea.
Then to come home and be blessed with living on the West Coast of British Columbia. Wilderness on our doorstep. A Multi-tool adventure on the the pacific coast of Nootka Island, wilderness at its finest and raw ocean adventure.
And finally another dream come true, to Myanmar, where you can expect the unexpected. Vastly undocumented and unexplored by western adventurers, how will we fair with our stand-up paddle boards and climbing shoes?
