I am Aniek, a Dutchie addicted to the outdoors and especially to climbing. From being an indoor gym junkie (argh, sounds too negative, nothing wrong with being a plastic puller!) I transformed more and more to a "rocker" and ice babe. Now I am trying to become the most allround mountain goat I can be: sending routes in the rocks, on ice or a combination of those, from 4 to 4000m climbs. And skiing, loads of skiing! Based in Tromsø, high up North, way above the polar circle, I have the perfect backyard for following the call of the mountains.
Next to challenging myself, I like to make others challenging themselves. Nothing beats that feeling of doing something you first thought of as impossible! (and the satisfaction in simply reading a book while laying on the couch afterwards). With this blog I try to keep up with myself and I hope to inspire others to go out.
Hope to see you in the mountains!
