What we're about

"A person who holds a regular job during the week which restricts their ability to party/go on trips/partake in awesome activities, and thus plans epic weekend adventures to compensate. As much variation and quantity of awesomeness is packed into the weekends as physically possible, warranting the rest of the work week to recharge for the next weekend." - urbandictionary.com

Whether you are preparing to climb the highest peak in the Solar System - Olympus Mons on Mars, or just need a little push to achieve your goals... I am here with you! Plus, It would be great to meet new friends, go out and have fun together, hiking, climbing, skiing, or any outdoor fun!

About myself: My name is Yun. I am a normal person just like you. When I was 26, I accidentally discovered that I have a passion for getting up on those enormous peaks. since then, I have been climbing around the world. From the lower 48 to Alaska, Mexico to South America, Tibet to Nepal, I was lucky enough to visited so many gorgeous summit: Rainier, Iztaccihuatl, Cotopaxi, Urus Este, Ishinca, Pisco Oeste, Chopicalqui, Denali, Cho Oyu, and Everest. These journeys fundamentally changed me as a person forever, in their own special ways that I could never have imagined.

Does it make me a real climber tho? My answer would be an absolute No! At best, I am just a weekend warrior who is stubborn enough to follow my heart. But boy oh boy, all those weekend training paid off. From March 2017 to March 2018, before heading to Nepal, I logged 411 hours of training despite having a 9-5 job, 73% of those took place during weekends, which added up to over 300 hours. And during those 300 hours, I gained about 180,000 vertical foot. In return, my performance was rock solid on Everest.
