Trip Reports From Afghanistan, Mongolia & Montenegro

Trip Reports From Afghanistan, Mongolia & Montenegro

Black Diamond has run a series of interesting pieces on their website recently which feature trips their athletes and employees have taken to a few pretty out-of-the-way places.

In this photo journal, Mike Libecki shares the story of his solo expedition to Afghanistan to check out unclimbed rock towers and immerse himself in the culture.

In this piece, a group of Black Diamond’s employees file a lengthy report on a two-week trip they took to Mongolia.  During that time they explored some amazing looking granite domes and boulders and experienced a lot of the problems one would expect with trying to find new climbs in a place like Mongolia.

And finally, Black Diamond grassroots athlete Dawn Glanc filed this report about a trip she took to the small eastern European country of Montenegro.  Unfortunately, the weather did not exactly cooperate, but they were able to make the best of things in Montenegro as well as nearby Croatia.

    Thanks for sharing this, Narc. I don’t think I’d’ve seen it otherwise, and few things get the imagination swirling like thoughts of obscure climbing in remote parts of the world. So many possibilities out there….

    Very neat stuff….
    Does anyone happen to know how/where one can get a similar journal style web page like Mike Libecki’s photo journal? I had a photographer friend that was curious. If anyone knows of a direction to point me it would be much appreciated.
