Golden peaks

This is the view we got on the top of the Petite Fourche. It's showing the west face of the Aiguilles Dorées, and they are really worth their name: Aiguilles Dorées means "golden needles"...

We were glad to reach this place, after having walked in bad weather for 4 hrs. The owner's wife got compassion with us, and we got hot chocolate and chocolate pie, for free! Picture taken in 1994, with the cheapest of the cheap camera's of that time..

Face Nord Boulders

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Face Nord Boulders

This is a picture of "Bloc B". It clearly shows the growing popularity of bouldering in Les Awirs. The Face Nord boulders are in fact the remains of a massive overhang that fell down some years ago, taking away possibilities for some really hard routes (5.14?), but creating these boulders...

Tnx 2

Average Rating = 4.21/5 Tnx 2

A while ago, I submitted a very similar picture. One of the advices was to crop out some disturbing trees. I cropped the photo exactly like proposed, and submitted it for a photo contest. Result: I got a very nice sleeping bag as a price, and now it's the front page picture of a local climbing magazine :-) So again, thank you!

French couple congratulating each other on the summit of Aiguille de l'Index. Through the clouds on the background, you can see the Mont Blanc. The magnificent view on the highest mountains of western Europe is what really makes climbing in the Aiguilles Rouges so beautiful..

Who wants to know the "secret" behind the no holds shadow movement ? Well, here it is. Not the same side of the statue, but still the same technique.

Shadow movement in the park.

Average Rating = 4.22/5 Shadow movement in the park.

In Hasselt, there are no natural rocks. Fortunately, some artist provided excellent practicing material by means of his statue in the park. Combine this with a sunny autumn day, a great climber (Bigwallollie climbing), and you get some nice shots...

Bouldering in Cap Gris Nez

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Bouldering in Cap Gris Nez

At the bottom of the cliff, you can find some good bouldering. Bring a crash or two and some good spotters, because the landing is generally not so good as on this boulder.
