Paige Claassen and Jon Glassberg spent nine months, from June 2013 through the end of March, traveling the world, climbing, and raising money and awareness for community-oriented nonprofits around the globe. In order, they visited South Africa, Russia, Italy, Japan, China, India, Turkey, Ecuador, and Chile, spending about a month in each location.
Both climbers sent big, with Claassen doing several 5.14 first ascents and first female ascents, and Glassberg achieving a new personal best on a rope. More important, they raised over $18,000 for their chosen causes. Below are the collected videos from the trip. Watch as Claassen and Glassberg climb exotic locales, send hard routes, and engage with interesting cultures around the world. Also, check out our interview with Claassen and Glassberg about the tour.
