General Climbing Discussion

Join a climbing expedition: Istanbul to Singapore?
12:46:34 AM
Take a Big Red specially converted climbing expedition vehicle with a 13 foot bouldering wall on the back.

Add 20-35 climbers from all over the world and head off around the globe developing new rock climbing areas and stopping at the best of the established ones. That's Hot Rock.

Other than existing guidebooks and our own bulging new routes book, we use climbing contacts and other local knowledge wherever we go to find and develop the very best crags.

Grade is less important than attitude. Are you up for adventurous, unguided climbing and exploring, across the remotest corners of the globe? On past trips we've put up new routes from 5-28, and (according to local ethics) bolted from 14-30. Routes range from single pitch to 1800m big walls. We've found lost prison mountains and discovered the DWS potential of lakes and cliffs around the globe. And because you can't always get Hot Rock - there's alpine kit on board for those new routes or big ticks above the snowline too.

From April 08 you can join us for periods of time ranging from 3 weeks to 11 months or more as we journey all the way from Istanbul, where Europe meets Asia, to Singapore and the South China Sea.

Our multinational team of climbers will travel from the limestone and tufa crags of Turkey, through the big walls and warm welcomes of Iran to the sports climbing and boulering nirvana of India. After crossing the himalaya through Nepal and Tibet, the expedition includes a rare visit to China to visit its otherworldly limestone karst formations, and takes in Thailand too.

From Kalymnos to Krabi, from Bisotun to Badami and from Hampi to the Himalaya, the Big Red truck will visit the very best climbing to be found throughout Asia on this extraordinary trip.

Phone me on +44 (0)7812 086 099 for a dossier or just go to for all the info.


ps - free time now? There is still time to join us climbing in Africa. The Big Red truck is just leaving South Africa, northbound to Istanbul over the next 9 months or so!
