Rab shop!

Rab -the brand that’s keeping me warm and dry- opened their first shop-in-shop in the Netherlands and in the world for that matter!

Shadowmover 2.0

I have been trying “Shadowmover” on and off this year, but it was only at the beginning of June that I made the “click” in my head and really went for it.

Training course!

If you’ve planned a sport climbing holiday and you still want to gain some fitness before you go, then this course might be the right one for you…


Last weekend I climbed Spirit, an old route in Belgium …

Monkee Shooter

Last year I wrote about a Monkee-photoshoot… Well, here’s the making-off video! Check out the new collection on Monkee! MONKEE…

8c+ & 8c

We’re in the last month of our trip and our agendas are slowly filling up with appointments in Belgium, Holland and Germany. Things are coming to an end and somehow that seems alright with me.


I haven’t been bouldering in a long time, but after a couple of days I got the feel for it again and things started to go down.


Some old footage of a problem that I’ve opened last year in Austria. When I climbed I used 14 pads and was still terrified…


Intermezzo! Two weeks ago –before moving on to Rodellar- I flew to Nürnberg to take part in the Monkee photo-shoot. It was good to be away from the crags for at least a couple of days and relax a bit…

Barry White

After a very relaxed trip to Spain, I returned with Thomas and Claudia to my boulder “Barry White” last week, of which I did the first ascent last December. Thomas and I wanted to do some filming; Claudia joined us to make some pictures…


Saturday 7h30: after a crappy night of sleep in the car we poured ourselves full of coffee (the really strong black stuff that you can drink or spread on your bread). “Auf geht’s!” Half an hour later we are standing under a waterfall also known as “Massada”.

At that moment we should have decided to turn around.
