Kayak & Climb Indonesia

ROAM with Sasha DiGiulian

Rural Indonesia is geographically stunning and offers the promise of world-class rock climbing. Recently pro climber Sasha DiGiulian and writer/photographer Chris Brinlee Jr. used sea kayaks to explore and develop climbing on different islands, including Timor and Sumba. This was a part of the larger goal of the trip which was to bolster ecotourism as an alternative, more sustainable form of economic infrastructure. They hoped to bring attention to the outdoor recreation possibilities in the area and to start developing an economic alternative to mining—sustainable tourism.
