Ticket crack - the crack climbing masterpiece

di

Urban climbing in Belgium: Sébastien Berthe, Florian Delcoigne, Pierre Mertens, Pablo Recourt and Loic Debry attempt 'The Ticket Crack' at Groenendael railway station close to Brussels.

Crack climbing in Belgium? With a maximum altitude of 694m this country certainly isn’t world-famous for its splitter cracks, yet some of the greatest crack climbing experts originate from this Kingdom, such as Nicolas Favresse and Sean Villanueva to name just two Belgian talents.

Where do they train therefore? At the indoor climbing walls, but also below bridges, flyovers and other buildings dotted around the country. And at this crack located at the Groenendael railway station just south of Brussels. Dubbed The Ticket crack for obvious reasons, it was freed last year by Villanueva and recently Sébastien Berthe, Florian Delcoigne, Pierre Mertens, Pablo Recourt and Loic Debry commuted there to check it out. By the sounds of things, they’ll be needing another ticket before managing to repeat it and free some of the other projects nearby.
