Mountain Knowhow

About me

Hi! I’m Arne Hendricks and this is my place where i talk and write about climbing, mountaineering and camping stuff.

As an avid climber and family man i love to be outside and spend the day climbing, camping and having a good time.

On this blog i share all the things i learn about climbing, mountaineering and all-around outdoor things. You will find reviews, guides, tips and tricks here and more. I love working with others who are passionate abut these topics too, so hit me up if you want to contribute!

Keep in mind, i am not a pro climber, and not every post here is about hardcore climbing stuff – i like to do thought experiments etc., and sometimes it will result in me writing an “odd” post, which does not really fall into a categoryAn example is my post about Alex Honnolds movie Free Solo, i was curious how and if he would be able to climb down on such an attempt, did some research and wrote the post.
