I enjoy every kind of climbing, especially when I can learn more about movement from the variety of moves of the boulder or route that I am trying to climb.
To challenge the climbers and to see the progression they make while figuring out the easiest and smoothest beta and then finally being able to climb the problem.
My favorite type of walls are slabs, vertical walls and slightly overhanging stuff. I prefer straight walls that I can shape to my needs with wooden volumes.
But also horizontal wall formations are nice to set on, because who doesn’t like a complex, powerful roof-boulder?
I have no preferred setting style; I like dynamic ‘New School’ bouldering as well as powerful climbing on small edges or fingerpockets. For a regular gym-business I like to set something from every category per setting-session, so that every customer can find something that suits their climbing style.
By adding the right amount of spicy trickiness and or flow so that you feel good while climbing the problem, even when you have to move through some uncomfortable positions.
Making good holds explores one of the artistic aspects of climbing; the holds must attract visually, the prehension should feel right, and the grain must caress your skin, ow yeah!
The big variety of volumes you can get nowadays adds so many possibilities in creating movements and ads much style to the appearance of a wall and so I like the trend of more and more volumes. BUT to give everybody the best experience they can get in your gym you need small and uncomfortable old-school holds as well!
What has been small training rooms for those who wanted to get more powerful during the off-season has now become very large climbing gyms for everyone from families with small children to elite athletes – everything under one roof. I like seeing the sport grow more and more but we must not forget why we love this sport: The feeling of a strong community of friendly people you can have the fun of your lifetime with, where everybody is welcome and where you always like to come back to !
No, most of the new shapes are already known from exhibitions but nonetheless I like getting new inspiration for what is possible with all the new shapes by watching the worldcups.
