Climbing through the monsoon

Earlier this month I switched from being a corporate dirtbaglawyer to an environmental dirtbag lawyer.

In the gap between jobs, dirtbagjens and I made it over to Thailand for a week of climbing on beautiful limestone.

We also experimented with film for the first time.  Dirtbagjens turned the trip into our first short travel film:

The short version

The long version

Maybe one of these days I’ll convince Dirtbagjens to post about the process behind the scenes.

In the meantime, I’d love to hear your tips and tricks for holiday films that people actually want to watch!

Here’s hoping our go pro gets to enjoy good views again soon.

  3. We stayed in at the Phatuwan resort in Railay. An air conditioned room with a big balcony/fridge/decent bathroom/swimming pool access and restaurant was 800 baht a night.

    Holiday graded if they’re dry!

    Seems like there are lots of badass Thai climbers who can act as personal guides for a day or two was well. I don’t think it’s super expensive either.
