'Into Climbing' - Presentation


‘Into Climbing’, two words that embrace the life of many climbers, so it does with mine. Climbing is not just a sport like many of us know, it’s a lifestyle and a way of developing yourself. More than that, it’s something we have a hold on, it’s a part of our selves and we don’t want to lose it. Once you get into it, you won’t get out soon.

This is what happened to me eleven years ago. ‘Into Climbing’ is the name of the process I made from being a little, enthusiastic and competitive child to the person who I am right know, far from perfect and still lots to learn and discover.

‘Into Climbing’ is a presentation where I try to share my experiences as a climber and traveller. With pictures and movies I’ll show you the places I’ve been and tell you stories I’ve experienced. From the sport climbing and bouldering I did in Europe to discovering traditional climbing in North-America where I bought a Chevy Van and went out on my own.

The largest part of this lecture I will show you a movie about the amazing Big Wall expedition I made in the remote jungle of Venezuela. I’ll share some stories about how we got there, hiked through the wild jungle together with some Pémon Indians, my first night sleeping on a wall, discovering unknown rock and some beautiful clean climbing, hunger and thirst and at last the euphoria when reaching the top and succeeding our goal.

With all this I hope to give people inspiration for new trips, new idea’s and motivation by showing them what I saw. Most of all I want to invite you all to this nice little evening to enjoy some stories and to relax watching some beautiful images and movies about climbing and travelling.
