Hey folks! I'm going to be on a long trip starting in Thailand for bolt clipping on beaches and then trying to head up to China for trad climbing in Liming and Keketuohai.
I'd really like to avoid humping the extra trad gear to various sport crags (would just be dead weight for months). Anyone have any recommendations on (cheap?) shipping or storage options.
Ideal would be to have a friend send trad gear from US to somewhere in China, but I bet this could be expensive. Second choice would be store the gear somewhere and pick it up on my way to China from Thailand. Open to other suggestions.
Thanks for your input!
(Also, if anyone has been to China for trad climbing and has any additional insights I'd love to hear them. PM me!)

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
