From Hanoi, take a packed bus to Haiphong, and then a packed speedboat to Cat Ba island. Then pick your own boat, fill it with climbing shoes, Halida beers, chalk and sexy swimsuits. Open your eyes and enter the game. Sit start from a former USSR kayak (watch your balance), campus up to the lip of the roof, heel hook, stand up, and you’re already pumped! Now, you’re really in the game. By the way, you’ve been had, there is no exit. The more you climb, the higher you fall.
