To all the ppl living in Belgium, have some of you tried this new gym? I saw a full page article in a French mag about it, and it looks really nice!

thomas,
Paolo and I have been there several times. It is indeed a nice bouldering gym. It's a bit too much of a "scene" for my taste, but the problems are set well, and plenty of options.

thomas - yes, it's not exactly 'new' though. I believe someone is building an even 'bigger and better' bouldering gym somewhere around there...It's a fad to build gyms in this country.

Anyway, concerning Bleau - i kind of like it - it's ok if you go there once in like 6 months - than you get to do a circuit with all the new problems at your level. But than i'm not a boulderer in the blood, so i wouldn't go there every week for training. Grades there are a bit weird, like i can almost onsight some 6bs there - when i have lots of trouble with some 5s in the real Bleau. I know, i know, no comparison, but it's demotivating anyway when you go outside.
