Cuba Climbing Reaches the Czech Republic

Gerhard Schaar is a globetrotting professional climber from Innsbruck, Austria. Before coming to Cuba a few years ago to climb and put up routes with Yarobys García, Gerhard was know to us for his “Bolts for Bangalore” program to help advance climbing in India. Last year Gerhard wrote an article on his experiences in Cuba for Montana, a climbing publication in the Czech Republic. Gerhard says his account is not another “wonderful description of a climbing area,” but “a little different story” of finding local climbers with no real prospects but a “joy of life, great solidarity and warm hospitality.” See it in Articles.
