News Alert for Climbers

Trump has not made Cuba off-limits for climbers

True, Trump took away the category of legal travel to Cuba that created a travel surge for Americans in 2016 and 17. Barely noticed, however, Trump redefined another category of legal travel, to provide Support for the Cuban People, that should make legal travel to Cuba even easier than before, at least for climbers. Cuba remains open for direct, convenient flights from a dozen U.S. cities. DO: stay, eat, and interact with ordinary Cubans, and take climbing gear and provide donations to sustain the Cuban climbers. DON’T DO: stay in expensive government hotels or go on tours run by Cuban Army or its enterprises. It’s that easy. Check out Rock & Ice.
