Our MEDIA presence (2001 – 2011)
“They’re just a sympatic bunch of friends who love dynos and Wu-Tang Clan.” – Dr Topo (from Canada) about the Costa brothers and climbing.lu.
“Uns geht es prioritär darum, unser Niveau zu steigern, zu reisen, Leute kennen zu lernen. Der Wettbewerbsgeist ist uns eher fremd.” – Yves Schartz in an interview with the Luxemburger Wort in 2004
“Citius, altius, fortius. So heißt die olympische Devise. Jean-Marc Winckel und Yves Schartz, zwei der besten Luxemburger Nachwuchskletterer, können sich kaum hiermit identifizieren. Für die zwei Felskletterer gilt eher die Devise: schwierig, schwieriger, am schwierigsten.” – Cutout of an article about Yves and Jean-Marc in the Luxemburger Wort in 2004
