Klimcentrum Bjoeks, Groningen, the Netherlands

    Prev Next

    Our country is as flat as a pancake, we have no mountains nor rocks to climb. So we need to be inventive if we want to practice climbing. This tower is a steel and wood construction, 37 metres high, with an overhang of 11 metres.

    Picture taken using a camera suspended from a kite in Groningen, the Netherlands. The image is uncropped - this is how it came out of the camera.

      Flat, schmat. I grew-up in Florida {USA}, and the TALLEST point there is only 245 feet {and that's in the northern part of the state}. I now live in N.E. North Carolina, and it's almost as flat here. There's NOTHING wrong with flat. Sure, mountains LOOK pretty, but I'd rather walk and bicycle on 'flat land'. '

      Besides, you can SEE FARTHER when KAPing in flat terrain. 'Nuff said.
