Mulanje Massif new route - Podcast

Post by justin »

In July 2023, four climbers from New England—Will Carey, Taki Miyamoto, Ray Rice, and Mark Richey—completed what just might be the longest pure rock climb in Africa. Their 800-meter route climbs straight up the middle of the upper face of Chambe, a huge granite monolith in Malawi. For this episode, AAJ assistant editor Michael Levy (who climbed on Chambe himself for several weeks in July 2022) spoke with Will and Mark about their adventures. Although both climbers have done many new routes (Mark is a two-time Piolets d'Or winner for his first ascents in the Karakoram), ground-up bolting a huge, exotic rock face was an entirely new experience.

Wow, that's epic! I've always been fascinated by rock climbing stories, and this one in Africa sounds like a real adventure. It's impressive how they tackled such a massive granite monolith. I'll definitely check out the podcast to hear more about their experience.
