Photo: Alex Manelis (@amanelis). For the next week I'll be sharing photos from various climbing destinations from around the world. The first destination I'm going to share photos from is Yangshuo, China - in good holiday cheer, here's Michael Shen (@jesusmikes) wearing a Santa Claus suit while climbing on the unbelievable Moon Hill Arch of Yangshuo China. The route he's on is called Red Dragon, 5.13b - known to be an epic jug haul. We spent a month in China exploring limestone wonders like this. @theresamanelis

It's been fun to be in sport climbing project mode again. Posted up at the VRG trying as hard as I can. Thanks @james_lucas for capturing the crux moves of my project. And being a constant source of motivation and belays.

Photo Alex Manelis (@amanelis) - this is an epic and favorite spot of mine, Salt Point State Park, Northern California. Beach climbing at its finest. A usual day starts out at Cafe Aquatica in Jenner for coffee and then on to a few warm up spots in the woods 🌲- then out to the coastline. This area requires special care as the rock is literally compressed sand. Holds can easily break making it sometimes unsafe and unstable. Crowds of families wonder what we're doing and usually ask the common question: "what is that mattress backpack thing?" - this is Jon Tsay (@cowsareforeating) on a Salt Point classic, Fear of the Inevitable (V6), opened up by local, @gtraversi. Follow me, @amanelis for more photos of spots like this along the California coast.

Photo Alex Manelis (@amanelis) - follow me for more photos from the Rocklands. Here, Andy Gullsten (@andygullsten) with nothing short of perfect style taking down the Rocklands classic, Nutsa (8a), Roadside Area, Rocklands, South Africa. This is a spectacular destination and I encourage everyone to make the journey at least once. The culture, the people and everything you could imagine come with visiting Africa. The flight is a grueling 30+ hours of travel all to arrive with a right hand side drive car, that will leave you a tad confused

So this strong Parisian guy has been climbing in gyms indoors for decades. He sent his hardest roped climb, a 7b+, about 20 years ago. Then he came to #Kalymnos and flashed this badboy, which was quite a bit tougher than his previous hardest redpoint. It was a nice little Christmas present to himself. Can you #namethatclimb? Happy holidays to all!

I'm not much of an ice climber but, since it's winter, many of us climbers are headed to those amazing ice formations. @dommelheimer and @summerium at Caribou Creek on Kids Corner, a 4 pitch W13.

“Tales of Power (5.12b, Kauk, et al, 1977) is a steep thin-hands to chimney crack in Yosemite Valley. This was one of the first climbs of this grade that I climbed on my first attempt.” This week, Yosemite climber and guide Miranda Oakley is sharing photos and stories as part of our #alpinistcommunity project. She calls her collection “The Spaces Between.” This is her third post for the week. [Photo] Matt Van Biene (@mattyvanbiene)

There aren't that many photos out there that capture what simul climbing big walls really feels like. Here @tommycaldwell and I are simuling towards the top of Mt Watkins in Yosemite. Miles of granite, endless cracks. Good times. We managed to both free the route in 2:50, which is pretty quick for a 2000ft wall. It was a good start to the Triple. Thanks @benjaminbditto for being able to stay ahead of us and take good photos. #tbt

See you later Red River Gorge! Hello Hueco! Finally made it to our destination. I broke my phone so I've been offline for a few days. Looking forward to shooting bouldering for a bit! Here's another shot of Ben Page on the Shuffle. #redrivergorge #climbing #rockclimbing #climbing_is_my_passion #fit #outdoorsports #adventure

Usually climbing with @cedarwright means wrestling choss filled gullies, watching him tear off a belayer and the usual manzanita death marches. But making the second free ascent of the Unemployment Line (5.12b) in Yosemite with Cedar was far different. The crack curves up the wall for four stellar pitches on Mount Broderick at a sustained difficulty. The rock, the exposure, and the nearby waterfall make this one of the best new lines in #Yosemite. Photo by James Lucas (@james_lucas). - #ClimberTakeOver This week, @james_lucas is taking over the Rock and Ice Instagram feed, bringing us climbing shots from around the world. Lucas is a full-time #climber, #dirtbag and frequent contributor to Rock and Ice. This is his fifth post of the week.

Red Rocks Slab. Stay close to the wall. Thanks for the photo: @its_rawdog

That awkward moment at the end of a pitch when your partner has to climb over and under your limbs to actually get on the belay ledge. Always fun doing this dance with @daveallfrey!! We had a delightful day of climbing until it started to snow on top... Always good training for alpinism.

Here's looking back to a fairly "trying hard" moment this past summer on pitch 4 of an 8 pitch project, 'Blue Jeans Direct' 5.14a, with Tom Anderson on Mt. Yamnuska! Bow Valley, Alberta. 📷 by @johnpricephotography #rockclimbing #tbt #sportclimbing #multipitchclimbing #tryhard

Back in October @the_wild_coyote and I went down to the San Rafael swell to look for FAs. We climbed this route only to discover a slung Boulder on the top. Needless to say it was still an awesome route with 2 pitches of wide climbing. It went at around 5.11 pic is of me leading the second pitch.

"Bagre, one of my climbing mentors, balances his way up Buena Vista Social Crux 7c+ [5.13a] in Cojitambo, Ecuador. I highly recommend visiting Cojitambo if you ever find yourself in Ecuador, great climbing and great people." Photo by Drew Smith (@drewsplan).

The goal of the Mitch Underhill Mountain Fund is to inspire others to explore and learn through outdoor adventures like climbing and backcountry skiing. Mitch started climbing when he was ten years old and completed his first El Cap route during his senior year in high school. Mitch was a firefighter, and spent winters backcountry skiing in the Sierra Nevada. He climbed all over the world, including the Ruth Gorge in Alaska, Thailand, Italy, France, and all over California and the West Coast. Mitch passed away unexpectedly at age 34 in September 2013. The fund provides scholarships in Wilderness Education and Fire Science through Lake Tahoe Community College. Make a donation to the Mitch Underhill Mountain Fund at Mitch Underhill on Space Walk (5.11c/d, 85’, Nelson-Todd, 1973; FFA: Cashner-Summer, 1979), Eagle Creek Canyon, Granite Lake, California.

It seems the climbs in #Joshuatree may have a common theme, make time to dangle! Here is photographer @timkemple airing it out on a classic 5.6 R. 📷 @dankrauss #climbing #bouldering #dangle #dpmjtree #jtree @thenorthface #rockclimbing
