Ennedi Desert, Chad

Climbing - - THE BETA - —COVER MODEL JAMES PEAR­SON

“Our trip to Chad was my first ‘se­ri­ous’ climb­ing ex­pe­di­tion, and one that paved the way to a whole host of other great trips over the last five years. What I’ll al­ways re­mem­ber from Chad is the space— wide open and end­less! It was the first time I had vis­ited the desert, and the first time I can say I have been some­where that no other hu­man ever had. Mak­ing first as­cents of those amaz­ing tow­ers was spe­cial not only for the climb­ing ac­com­plish­ment, but also be­cause atop those tot­ter­ing piles of choss, I was look­ing at the world from a to­tally new point of view.”
