Genyen: The JourneyWednesday, September 7, 2016
Over the past eight years, Dave Anderson and Szu-ting Yi have been exploring and climbing in the remote Genyen Massif on the Tibetan Plateau. Their interest in the Genyen Massif first began with a photograph of a 700-year-old monastery resting in a high alpine valley. It was not a climbing objective contained within the photo that attracted Anderson and Yi, but rather the mountains they imagined just outside the frame. Throughout their journey, they stood on top of 6000-meter peaks, rode a motorcycle 1,800 miles through the mountain range and experienced the vibrant cultures of Western China. However, their greatest accomplishment was what they learned about themselves as a result of their experiences in the Genyen Massif.
