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!
