28th Oct Slideshow

Over June and July of this year, Vadim and two friends embarked upon a grand tour of some of the best climbing the US has to offer. With a difficult alpine endeavour, the Incredible Hulk, as their eventual goal, they honed their skills at legendary climbing areas - from Devil's Tower to Indian Creek, and eventually in the Valley itself. 

This trip had it all: desert towers, backcountry walls, rockfall misadventures, a tent with a porch, and a couple of dudes in denim short shorts. 

Come and witness what you're missing in the American West!

30th September Slideshow

In November 2013, Florian Keller left Nairobi in a 1997 Toyota Landcruiser. His destination - Rio de Janeiro and the 2014 Football World Cup. 199 days and 42,000 km later, he crossed the border from Bolivia to Brazil, three days before the opening match of the World Cup.

While the August slide show covered the journey from Nairobi to the Pacific Ocean, the September slide show will bring the second part of the journey to life. 

After exploring awesome pre-colonial Aztec and Maya sites in Mexico, Florian and his travel companions crossed Central America and climbed some of its hundreds of stunning volcanos. A final sea journey passing dozens of pristine tropical islands of the San Blas archipelago took them from Panama to Colombia. From here, they drove along the mighty Andes through Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, crossing en route countless high altitude mountain passes and exploring some of the most spectacular mountain scenery on earth. 

Venue: Casual Bites @ 8:00pm

All are welcome

26th August Slideshow @ Casual Bites 8PM

In November 2013, Florian Keller left Nairobi in a 1997 Toyota Landcruiser dubbed “Pele”. His destination - Rio de Janeiro and the 2014 Football World Cup. 199 days and 42,000 km later, he crossed the border from Bolivia to Brazil, three days before the opening match of the World Cup.

The journey took him through 26 countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. Heading north from Kenya, he crossed the Gulf of Aden from Djibouti to Oman, drove onwards to Dubai and crossed the Persion Gulf to Southern Iran from where he headed east through Central Asia and Mongolia and then across Siberia. After reaching the Pacific Ocean at Vladivostok, he shipped the car to Japan and onwards to Los Angeles for the second part of the journey - through Mexico and Central America and along the Andes to Brazil. 

The August slide show will cover the first part of the journey from Nairobi to the Pacific Ocean. En route, Florian and his travel companions explored the Silk Route, battled with Siberian winter temperatures of below -45°C, skied in Iran, Central Asia and Russia, snowboarded on frozen Lake Baikal being pulled by their faithful expedition vehicle "Pele" and in a scary moment broke through the ice of the frozen Amur River.

 

Part II in September!
