Belgium has a lot to offer. Beers, chocolate, fries with mussels, a peeing statue,... But above all, the sport climbing does not disappoint.
The reason why sport climbing in Belgium stays relatively unnoticed with others then Belgians and Dutch remains a mystery.
The climbing in Belgium is mostly on compact grey and slightly slippery limestone. The style is almost always hyper-technical on angles around the vertical axis. If you like small crimps and precise footwork, you will adore climbing here.
The season is as usual spring, summer and autumn, but climbing on dry winter days is always possible on sunny south-facing crags.
Belgium's main sport climbing attraction is definitely Freyr, with a rich history in free-climbing. Freyr is home to Belgium's tallest and most impressive face, the Al'legne, as well as -some say- the world's first 8a.
