Berdorf weekend - DATE CHANGED at Berdorf

August 3, 2012 at 4pm to August 5, 2012 at 10pm
 Berforf is a great climbing area in Luxembourg: good routes, well bolted, in the middle of beautiful countryside. There's even an outdoor climbing wall to practice those techniques ;-)     Berdorf is in the middle of a nature reserve, and you need a permit to climb there, but permits are free and everyone gets one. To apply, download…See More

Dave replied to Robert's discussion How to extend a quickdraw?
"There's a nice route on the west facing wall at Sloterdijk that keeps going to the right. Quite severely in fact, since it goes round the corner first, then up one line, and then up the next line! It depends on how often you clip - normally…"

Dave replied to Robert's discussion How to extend a quickdraw?
"Depends on the route. Sometimes a route will make a bit of a turn, or it has a traverse, and standard length draws will make the rope cross at too much of an angle and create a lot of drag, and drag can cause problems for both the climber and the…"

Dave replied to Robert's discussion How to extend a quickdraw?
"That's basically what you do - take two carabiners, and join them with a sling. If you tie it up properly, it hangs from your rack around the same length as a normal quickdraw. Here's an example:…"

"Sure, I'll climb with you, but I can only manage it in the evening. If that's ok, how about Klimmuur, 7:30?"

Back from a weekend in Berdorf, and this time we got checked.

Berdorf is getting more and more popular, for fairly obvious reasons - it's a beautiful location, it's quiet, and it has excellent, well-bolted routes. The crag is situated in a nature reserve, and the Luxembourg environment ministry try to manage it through a permit system. There is no automatic right for anyone to climb there - you must have a permit. These are very easy to obtain, and you can apply for a permit for…

Hi Dave,

Had a great time this weekend, thanks for the food and the whiskey.

Just let me know how much I owe you for the food and I'll pay you back. I'll still owe you a glass of Scotch though...

See you soon,

How was the 6a and returned home safely?


Enjoyed the weekend and especially liked Yvoir! Even though taking a friend was a bit difficult, had the feeling I was in a 'spagaat': not able to make both him and the group happy. But now I know for the next time.


Please let me know when you know about the costs for dinner.


Have a nice day and maybe see you tomorrow?

Hey Dave! Sorry I missed out on seeing you. Where you there? I was a bit late, but I stayed until 5.30 or so, climbing with Menno. A shame I didn't see you joined the yes group. But also, if I had, I wouldn't be able to recognise you. Maybe a photo of your face on the site would be an idea? Did you end up climbing? So sorry if you didn't!

what kind of event? and what time?
If I can, I will be there!
thank you
