Traditional Climbing

April 2015

Cadarese in Italy a very special crack climbing area. Again sandstone with perfect splitters. The Benefit is the nice Italian foods and wines. Please be aware of the limited belay areas on side of the rock quite high up😉

July 2016

Bohuslan, Sweden is another perfect tradional climbing location. With perfect rough granite and cracks it is wonderful if you wish to climb.
The hard granite can be eating you skin so please be aware.
As you perhaps can see by the picture the route is called  'granite biting' 😀

Pfalz, Germany red sandstone in with beautiful nature and a nice country side. Walking to the sandcastels is already an adventure.


Both traditional as well as sportclimbing is possible, not to forget bouldering.
Please be aware of rules during breeding season that means some cracks are closed.
Sportclimbing might be intimidating because of sparely space between bolts back from history and the local bolting war.
Combining climbing with good wines from the area makes it a perfect vacation location

Annot, France a province in the southern part of France,         his it all😀.
Perfect crack climbing on sandstone.
What sandstone? Yes, sandstone! It is incredable. But please be aware of this precious area its high and even for us scary at some points.
Next to tradclimbing you can also do sport climbing and in a close by area do bouldering. It can definitly be as interesting as Fontainebleau. 


June 2017

Trad climbing in “our” local area in Ettringen and Kottenheim Germany. We love this basalt area with its perfect cracks. They were formed when the lava from the volcano cooled down and scrunk. We often take young climbers with us to give them the oppertunity to experience this way of climbing.
If you are interested please let us know.

Trad Climbing in Annot is a must do for traditional climbers

Yes we went back to Annot again, last year we were left with good memories from this beautiful place and the fun that we had with traditional climbing, sport climbing and bouldering. This vacation was concentrated around trad climbing and doing a little bit of Bouldering. We explained last time where Annot is and what you can do to enjoy. Although it was chilly in April, the weather became quickly warm, specially when you walked up the path from the train station to La Chambre du Roi. We did this multiple times, so you will get well trained legs and will loose some weight with 15kG gear on your back. Hi Hi.

We started at La Cave again but this time no crowds of people. Super. Very nice easy crack starters like Adam and Eve to get ready for harder stuff. La Voie du Sage 6a+ but has a quit physical offwidth part. Look at the picture with the rope against the wall with 250-300 meters below you.

Trad climbing is our favorite climbing activity, the mental and physical aspect of this type of climbing makes it a full complex activity that we like. We love to be in our "home area" called Ettringen with plenty of cracks to train your abilities. If you went any advice on the gear that we use please leave us a message so we can inform you.

For companies that want a review on their gear please send us your request and we can make a review story of it in our blog, website, instagram or youtube account.



August 2021

A climbing weekend full of Trad Climbing. That was the goal and it started like it should.

Good weather perfect rock and great friendship with us.

So we had a nice time in Kottenheim in Germany with cool climbing, filming and having a nice barbecue with fire and nice drinks. Regretfully we had pouring rin the other morning so instead of climbing we went for Hiking over the volcano's

January 2022

We normally take care of our climbing gear in the winter time which is normally the off season for our trad-climbing activities.

We inspect our cams (friends, camelots) ballnuts and other small gear on any possible damage, miss function or wear. We take out the bad pieces for safety. The good ones we clean and give them maintenance and being lubed up again for the next season. We made a video about this activity to share how we do that. Please go to the youtube episode for this and also enjoy the examples of gear placements in a couple of trad areas. Some nice drone shots in our favorite local trad location Ettringen in Germany


April 2022

Easter weekend in Germany.

We had such a great weekend in the Easter in Kottenheim and Langscheid. First we met some wonderful people from US and Germany during our trad climbing activities. We more or less told our life stories. We will definitely meet them again. In the evening we where invited for a typical easter fire party on the Camping FalkleyMuhle in Langscheid. A great evening with friends and family around a huge fire. Somehow the morning was hard 😅.

June 2022

In June we made video's for all Trad and Crack climbing lovers with cracks from finger to fist width. Everyone is welcome to enjoy and to see this nice sport. Maybe soon Off-Width climbing again . The area around Koblenz called the Volcano Eifel area is well known because of its lava and basalt creating the perfect crack climbing rock. Places like Ettringen, Kottenheim and Mayen with plenty Trad climbing possibilities. We had already nice weekends in the fore season and had a great time in the eifel area. We started with easy routes in Kottenheim. On the Falkleymühle camping we show you the restored water mill that was just running when we came along. Great cracks for Trad-aholics.
