    Hey all! I’m looking for partners…I am in Yunnan now. I have been traveling with my step brother (who is Chinese, from shanghai) and his girlfriend. I have turned them onto climbing a bit, but their goals are not the same as mine and as you all know we climbers and adventure enthusiasts can be different people to say the least. Anyway, we will likely part ways until I meet them in shanghai the 24th to head back home. I am looking for partners to get a few days more climbing in either in Yunnan, since I am already here or around Shanghai…feel free to email me
