Our Friday Night Video this week features Jenny Fisher and Kat Whipple in Liming, China. Both were drawn to each other by a mutual love of crack climbing and head to China with the aim of putting up new routes. The area has an abundance of dark red sandstone and the climbs are typically traditionally protected, with the occasional bolt. The team get stuck into the Far Away area where they find an Indian Creek-esque crack and a lot of swearing ensues.

He first attempted the route in 2011 and has since put in a couple of weeks' worth of effort. On the last day of his trip and despite racing the inevitable sun, Adam completed the route.
