DEEP WATER SOLO

Deep-Water Soloing (DWS), also known as Psicobloc, is a form of solo rock climbing that relies on the presence of water to protect against injury from falls. While typically practiced on sea cliffs at high tide, it can also be done on climbs above reservoirs, rivers, and swimming pools

This spectacular film by Louder Than Eleven explores the karst formations of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.  Watch Psicobloc pioneer Tim Emmett and U.S. Olympic climber Kyra Condie attempt one of the hardest deep-water solos in Vietnam.
