  • What goes around

Frank Elsen from the luxembourgish newspaper Luxemburger Wort came up to Jean-Marc Winckel for an article about climbing with the goal to promote our sport. The article is online at wort.lu.

Avec les premiers grands rayons de soleil de mars, les grimpeurs retrouvent le sourire. Au coeur de la Petite Suisse Luxembourgeoise, les rochers attirent à nouveau des spécialistes et des passionnés. Par dizaines, ils viennent à la découverte de nouveaux challenges. C’est le cas pour Jean-Marc Winckel qui pratique l’escalade depuis l’âge de 22 ans … READ MORE

… «J’espère que les jeunes seront de plus en plus nombreux à rejoindre les rangs de la Flera. Ils ne sont pas assez informés à l’heure actuelle. Et je trouve ça dommage, car c’est un sport intéressant. Il faudrait organiser des stages d’entraînement pour leur apprendre à analyser des problèmes, à vivre avec des succès et des défaites. Mais la situation est complexe: le Luxembourg ne dispose pas assez de murs d’escalade. Ceci rend les choses particulièrement difficiles. Les halls les plus proches sont Arlon et Trèves», constate Jean-Marc Winckel … READ MORE

We uploaded a better quality of one of our 1st climbing videos. The video is about bouldering in Fontainebleau in October 2005 by Olivier Groff. This video was also one of the 1st of its kind running through the world wide web back then (showing known boulderproblems around Fb7a to Fb7b+, with hip hop music and funny scenes) so that it had great succes. Locals in Fontainebleau even came up to us to congratulate us and it was published by many climbing homepages such as kairn.com, climbing.de, Dr Topo and many others. Dr Topo in Canada wrote the following: “They’re just a sympatic bunch of friends who love dynos and Wu-Tang Clan.:)
