Well that was fun! The Ardennes are mostly single-pitch rock climbs. These are not mountains, more like rocky outcrops. The area (Pont–a–Lesse in Namur province) where we went was up to 25m. We were the first "group" of the season, and with a least two instructors, there were just the four of us at the crag. The climbs themselves were in a private area. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we were required to reserve spots to climb.
We had a great weekend. We learned a ton, especially on knots (wink) and on crag protocol. Arie ended up ripping the skin off of his fingers on a 6A layback climb and almost decking in the process. Our skin is weak from months of not climbing, so we called it quits after that.
Thanks again Mountain Network Ardennes, and especially to our insightful, knowledgable, and very funny instructors Thomas & Bas.
