Summary

Strakke, rechte wanden in een oude steengroeve.

Description

Het hoofdgedeelte is een nauwkeurig recht uitgesneden blok met een aantal wanden eromheen. De routes zijn allemaal boulderroutes, alhoewel het niet duidelijk is waar deze moeten zijn.

Er wordt hier geklommen, de haken zijn soms oud, soms nieuw. Er zijn een stuk of vier behaakte wanden, en dan 1 route per wand.

Access issues inherited from Belgium

One of these applies:

  • this area is owned by a climbing organization (KBF, BAC, ...) and there is some kind of access regulation for it - mostly "you have to belong to one of these clubs,"
  • this area is owned by someone or some company and they don't mind if you climb there,
  • this area is owned by someone or some company and they have become angry at misbehaving climbers somehwere in the past and have closed the area,
  • this area is owned by someone or some company but nobody really knows who and the area is remote or rarely climbed, so nobody cares. Yet.

Additionaly, most area's are Natura 2000 protected, which can mean anything, but most of the time that it's closed to climbers.

The first option is your safest bet for having a nice (but maybe crowded) climbing trip.

Be sure to check and double check your information so that you avoid the closed areas. All areas, legal and illegal, are listed here on theCrag, but access information may not be up to date.

Approach

De locals rijden stomweg de groeve in en stoppen op het grasveldje naast de oude bunker. Mensen die graag de lak van de auto heel houden zetten hem ergens langs de geasfalteerde weg.

Ethic inherited from Belgium

EN: outside of the biggest crags, using magnesium is not okay. It degrades the rock and gets the rock dirty.

NL: gebruik buiten de grootste gebieden geen pof. De rots slijt er sneller van, en het laat vieze plekken achter - waar mensen over gaan klagen, waardoor het gebied gesloten wordt.
