Chad Kellogg presentation and UL clinic, Dec 12
« on: 11/17/12, 05:43 PM »

The Mountaineers and OR present an evening with world class climber: Chad Kellogg

Hello skiers and riders!

Join us for an evening with world class climber Chad Kellogg as he takes us on an amazing ten-day climbing adventure of the SW Ridge of Singuniang Shan, a 6250-meter peak in the Changpin Valley in Sichuan, China. Chad completed this climb with his climbing partner Dylan Johnson.

For the first three days the route involved climbing through steep rainforest, free climbing up to 5.11, numerous bivies on the 2000-foot granite wall in stormy weather and complicated aid climbing. On day four, the character of the route changed to remarkable alpine ridge climbing on snow covered rock in increasingly deteriorating weather and requiring mixed climbing. After eight days, Chad and Dylan finally reached the summit, right before a lightning storm hit. The way down was no less challenging with diminishing food supplies and by the end of the climb, Dylan lost over 30 pounds and Chad over 20.

This was a transformative climb and one of the most significant adventures for both climbers.
