About me

Thank you for visiting my blog!

My name is Alexander de Bree, and as you may have guessed, I’m really into climbing and bouldering.

Here’s a little history on me and the relation I have with climbing:

In 2017 I got into climbing. I would practise zealously at the gym. I loved it!

Around febuary 2018, however, I suddently had to stop climbing and bouldering. Long story short, I was diagnosed with rheumatism and at some point I had real difficulty even with simply walking around.

Fortunately, my prescription medicines started to work soon! And carefully, I started to climb again.

More and more.

All of the sudden, I would see myself in the gym everyday tackling some bouldering problems. I could feel myself getting stronger by the day.

That’s a great feeling that I’m currently still experiencing every day and for which I am so thankful!

Climbing for me is a way of triumphing over my rheumatism. It’s something I enjoy so much, that I decided I had to start a website where I share what I’ve learned about the sport.

Currently, this website has over 55 articles with content that I’m really proud of, adressing most of the questions beginning climbers may ask.

In the future, as I progress, I’ll add more and more content that will be enjoyable for more advanced climbers, too.

I’m even planning on shooting some video material during my next outdoors rock climbing adventure in april 2019, which I’ll then share on my youtube channel.

I really hope that you’ll enjoy my blog and stick around for what’s to come. For now, thank you for dropping by, and feel free to browse around!
