Photographer's Note

the weather in seoul has been incredibly hazy lately. it's made shooting difficult. the sky is dull grey and yellow dust from the gobi desert is thick in the air.

the weather was a little clearer when we caught a bouldering competition in the city. during lunch the weather was good, but in the after noon it was terrible.

i stayed until the end of the women's finals. this girl, whose name i don't know, was amazing. she was like a tiny spider clinging to the rocks. at one point, she was hanging off the edge of the route, looking for her next hold.

still a high school student, but she was one of the few that completed every event. she's an amazing climber.
