Based on all the information I have right now, based on who I am today, this is the best advice I can give.
And that's the truth.
Locals of Abim are convinced that “Chief Rock” (seen above right) cannot be climbed. Many have attempted the feat and all have either perished or mysteriously disappeared. I have obtained permission from the clan’s elders to one day try my luck and disprove the myth.
|Above is a picture of David, my quiet, mysterious 10 year-old guide that I met on my way to hike a mountain and scope out the "Chief Rock" above. David and his friends hunt for birds and snakes in these mountains with their homemade bow & arrows. On our long journey through extremely dense brush and over large rocks, David drank no water and wore no shoes (he now owns two pairs for being a fantastic guide).|
When returning from our agricultural visit, I persuaded my Mercy Corps friends to take a detour. We drove through the remote Kidepo national park and took a game drive until we were surrounded, and then pounded, by a heavy storm.
|We stayed for several days in the town of Kabong, a rock climber’s paradise. Regardless of my discretion, most climbs ended in the town pausing to wave and call out to the “crazy mzungu”.|
|I continue to ride out and wander whenever possible.|
