Chris Van Leuven Slideshow.

In January 2013, Chris Van Leuven traveled to Colombia with photographer Rich Crowder and pro climber Ben Spannuth. The highlight of their trip was exploring an area called La Ventana (The Window). The climbing at La Ventana consisted of traversing hanging stalactites in a cave located midway up a two thousand foot face and positioned directly over a cascading waterfall. Ben established a 5.13+ route in the cave. Next, they rappelled several hundred feet down the wall and through steep jungle to open the first route in a previously unexplored cave. Ben's next 5.13 route was named Gringos Verados or "Stranded White Guys," for reasons Chris will share during his show. Join us to get a look into the adventuresome world of Colombia climbing with Chris. There will also be a raffle with prizes provided by Evolv!
