Deep Water is a captivating exploration of fear, mentorship, and deep water soloing in panoramic Ha Long Bay, Vietnam with psicobloc pioneer Tim Emmett and competition climber Kyra Condie.
Watch as Kyra learns from the master, tackles the fear of climbing high above the water, and then succeeds on one of the hardest deep water solos in Vietnam, The Lightning Crack 5.13.
Ha Long Bay, Vietnam is a scenic climbing venue with over 3000 limestone formations dotting the ocean bay. Tim Emmett helped put “psicobloc” climbing on the map in Vietnam in the early 2000’s and has returned again to pass the torch to Kyra Condie, an aspiring and versatile climber with deep roots in competition and bouldering.
Louder Than Eleven’s Director Jon Glassberg teams up with Mountain Hardwear in this aesthetic short film highlighting one of the most dramatic forms of climbing.

I’m struggling to write a caption because of how much the people, climbing, and setting in Vietnam has amazed me. Cheers to @timemmett, @louderthan11, @francoislebeau, @mattburbach, and @mountainhardwear for making this trip so memorable! Glad it’s not over yet!! Photo by @francoislebeau 📷
