Rocker's Comments: --> Other Adventure Tours

Halong bay is an amazing place to climb. There are countless beautiful limestone faces and the potential is incredible for both rope climbing and psycho bouldering ( deep water soloing ).

There are many wonderful routes but you must be careful as the bolts and rappell biners corrode within a few years due to the ocean air.
Bringing many “leaver” biners and cord is advised. For those looking to take advantage of the untouched faces and put up some new routes, it is advised to use the titanium glue-ins that have been adopted by those in Railay and Tonsai,
near Krabi, Southern Thailand.

The base of some routes are under water a large partition of the day, while much psycho bouldering requires a high tide. However the periods of waiting never seem to carry with it the frustration often associated because one simply need to glance around to be calmed by the serene scenery.

"Deep Water Soloing paradise". This is climbing movie which we organized for Tim Emmett, Klem Loskot and 7 friends on October- 2004. They took the boat number 3 (sailing boats) and spent two weeks in Cat Ba island, Ha Long Bay for climbing.

"Lowell’s latest is Dosage 3 and it kicks off with Tim Emmett and Klem Loskot deep water soloing in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. Emmett’s enthusiasm is infectious contrasting with Loskot’s more peaceful and thoughtful commentary and climbing. Lowell has a habit of documenting the zeitgeist of the moment and with deep-water soloing he has hit bulls-eye. As Emmet says,“For me there is no other style that comes close: new routes, onsight, ground-up, with no ropes and no rack. You are just climbing.” Watch this segment and I’m sure you will agree. More, if you are like me will have a burning desire to try this type of climbing. "
