Wim Smets summits Lhotse
Wim Smets summited Lhotse this morning at 5h15am. With this last great performance, he just became the first Belgian alpinist to have summited five 8000-meter peaks. Wim first climbed Cho Oyu in October 2006 before then to successively make the ascent of Everest in 2007, Broad Peak in 2011 and Manaslu in 2012. Wim’s success relies in particular on a careful preparation and organisation of his whole expedition added to a deep physical training.

The trips of Jérôme De Boeck. have rarely been as productive as his last one. The one he had last week in Margalef was maybe the best one since many years. He sent a big number of routes in the 8th degree out of which an 8c/+ and three 8b onsight.
After a long period spending weekends in the climbing gyms means you have to go out a bit. It's the case of many young climbers who have a tight schedual in the beginning of this year. Last Saturday, Chloé Caulier headed to Fontainebleau to send two 7C.
