Cape Town is holding a special place in my heart. The first time I came there was in 2013 and I was immediately amazed by all the possibilities offered by this region. This trip was a special one as David was getting married. It was also my very first holiday with Hande and our first climbing trip.
A very inspiring story that has been lived covered by Pavel Blazek and Adam. Tommy Cadwell and Jorge Jorgeson were visionary and it is a total different ball game finding a route and a way to climb it. But Adam’s story is one the finest treat I’ve seen in modern rock climbing history. Thanks.

Some pictures taken at the time we were setting up Get Out Of The kitchen. Some of them will give you a good reference to gain an access to the route or to the top of Bukit Takun via Campground.
During the long Vesak weekend in Singapore, I had the chance to make a trip to Palu and paraglide in one of the best spot in South East Asia.
