Today my friends from boulder gym Kunststof celebrated their 1-year anniversary.

Throwing a boulder party called Kunst|Werck is the best way to celebrate your anniversary. 31 fresh set boulders were the results of last week. From toehooks and heelhooks to hanging upside down and running on volumes. Piece by piece they were fun and creative to climb.

I always get super psyched to climb when I visit this gym. In my opinion they have succeeded well. It was fun to watch other people climb, however it was more fun to climb all.

I ended up on the podium with 4 other climbers. It was good to hear the announcement at the end of the party: a second boulder gym will be open soon in Utrecht! 😀 I wish you all the best and see you next time!

Hello there!

Last week I made a last minute call to visit my friends in Fontaine Bleau. It was a good decision with a lot of fun, rowing in a boat, playing tennis, enjoy champagne, having dinner together and last but not least climb in the forest! It was a good time with Jerome, Karine, Etienne, Margaux and the rest.
















Instead of working out all the time, it felt good to be one with the nature and enjoy simple boulders. For example this boulder in Bas Cuvier – La Paillon directe.

Climbing without fear is the best way to enjoy and to be free 🙂







I am just done with editing a training video. I need to say that I was rusty in editing earlier this week. I spent more time on editing than filming the action!

Some background information, this was my 6th climbing session in 4 days(!) This time I looked into a campus board training. After the training I still feel energized, however my skin feels quite sensitive.

This video is based on Sean McColl’s campus board training. I followed his workout on the rungs, skipped some extra rests and it feels good. Vera joined me on this training. To be honest, it is much more fun to train together!

Then Vera and I went bouldering for another 1,5 hours.

2,5 hours later our climbing session finished. Efficient and productive, that’s the way I like it 😀

This video still gives me goosebumps when I watch it. I just have to share this video because it’s timeless. Press play, turn on your speakers and set to full screen!

Now I’m ready to go to the gym and kick ass! See you.

Ever wondered what an 8C boulder looks like in Fontaine Bleau? Here’s Guigui in Jour de Chasse. He sent it in 6 sessions. Awesome!

If you missed out a lot of bouldering on livestream, here is another nice compilation below. It’s competition bouldering with a lot of action!

I like the fact that there is a lot of footage involved from the European Championship Bouldering from Eindhoven 😀 Again compliments to the routesetters. I still enjoy it. What do you think?
