Watch on Wednesdays: Illegal Cuban Climbing

Posted on the 20 April 2011 by Exceedpossibility @exceedpossible
Climbing in Cuba is Illegal; I don't know why but who knows what goes on in Cuban politics! Climbing isn't dangerous to those not doing it (it isn't particularly dangerous to those doing it either) and it doesn't really damage the environment! Despite its illegality there are still climbers doing their stuff in Cuba, not behind closed doors but out in the open, even though Police trouble them for doing so. These climbers are courageous and brave for going against the law and it makes for a great climbing video. Enjoy!
