“During the past eight years Dave Anderson and Szu-ting Yi have been exploring and climbing in the remote Genyen Massif of the Tibetan Plateau. Their interest
in the Genyen Massif began with a photograph of a 700 year old monastery resting in a high alpine valley. It was not a climbing objective contained
within the photo that attracted Anderson and Yi, but mountains they imagined were just outside the picture frame. During the last decade they have
stood on top of 6000 meter peaks, ridden a motorcycle 1,800 miles through the mountain range and experience the vibrant cultures of Western China.
However, their greatest accomplishments were what they learned about themselves as a result of their experiences in the Genyen Massif.”
