Climbing for Cancer

Sometimes you have to remind yourself to the fact that life might be not so easy for everyone. And then as a human it's good to help. Even just a bit is more then nothing at all.
The easiest way to help is with donations.
This weekend was donation weekend. For the Dutch Cancer institute 'NKI-AVL'.
Monte Cervino and a couple volunteers organised a competition with as idea to collect money for the Cancer institute.
Every route you climbed had points, the more difficult the route the more points you got. I climbed together with a young climber, Arno and Jeroen (manager of the Monte Cervino gym). Jeroen belayed me in the lead climbs and Arno and I were a team for the competition.
I won the comp in my category and Arno became second in his category. But this comp was not just for 'winning'. Well, not for us, but the hope to win time and cures for Cancer with the money we all collected.
Afterwards we enjoyed an amazing home-cooked Thai meal. (We want more!)
Next year again!
