Climbing Animal Aniek Dutch Youth Champion! Minor detail: Third time in a row.

12195891_10205600919398545_6098792148753324053_nThis girl can climb y’all!!!
While most people chill out on a lazy Sunday, a bunch of hard climbing youngsters had a strong battle on the wall.

It’s the 3rd time in a row our GreenMonkie talent Aniek Lith conquered the 1st spot in the NJK – Dutch Youth Championship!! (Nederlands Jeugd Kampioenschap)
Organized by our GreenMonkie- supporting climbing centre Rocksteady in Bussum! Yesterday was -again- her night!
Aniek tells about the championship:
” After a great BOTS (a 21 hours adventure race) my feet were falling off my legs and I felt like I could sleep for days (or maybe even years, sleeping until a nice person kisses me awake). Luckily I woke up today already and I was impressed by how much better my body felt after only 7 hours of rest. There wasn’t more time to rest, because I had to defend my title of Dutch Youth Champion. Although my body still felt sleepy the competition went ok and I am happy to announce that I am now 3 times consecutively DUTCH YOUTH CHAMPION! 😀 ”

YES. You read it right, just one day before she did a 21-hours adventure race. What is her secret?! We wonder.
And by the way, she will be competing
AGAIN 28th of November, at the Dutch Championships!
Aniek, you continue to amaze us!! Greenmonkie loves you 😀

The election for the “Monkie-hero-Award” has generated a result of almost 500 votes!
It was very clear that the majority of them were ment for Femke Den Haas, the founder of JAAN Foundation!!!!

Big Congratulations Femke!!
A part of the Greenmonkie-Team and a part of JAAN gathered in climbinghall KLIMMUUR H.S. today on 4th of October -World Animal Day, to exchange the results.

Unfortunately Femke is currently doing her very good work in Indonesia.
Luckely other staff of  JAAN are delighted to receive the GreenMonkie Award on Femke’s behalf.

So all the donations of the next climbing benefit event will be going to JAAN and a smaller part will go to the fund of saving rainforest! Keep up all the good work you do Femke, and let’s all work together for a greener and animal -friendly world :) !
Have a great World Animal day!

Climbing animal in ACTION! Aniek’s calm & smooth skills in this vid!

Under pressure during this Lead-competition, she stays calm & smoothly climbs on.
What grade or level could this route be? Is the questions arising….

Aniek about the grade of this route:
“I really have no idea. All I know is that I came higher then anyone else. The level of a route during a competition is quite hard to tell… I think 7b+ but it could also be a 7b or a 7c.  And here’s a funny fact: During bouldering- worldcups the routes in the semi-finales are harder then the finals, because during the finals the climbers are more nervous and climbed the semi-routes  just before! During Lead-competitions, on the other hand, this is not the case, not that I know of at least.  “
All we know is that Aniek is climbing sharp, and we are happy to support her!
Climb on Aniek!

GreenMonkie wisdom 2 small

“Climbing”

It’s not just a sport that I have been practicing for over a year. Two and a half years ago, my life changed completely. Divorced after 12 years, with two boys under the age of 7. I wanted to go do something I could do on my days alone, what I would find exciting and scary, a distraction, something new and I thought of climbing.

Never done it, no one I knew did it and I went. The first four weeks I did not go higher than the first eight meters. Not ever. No way.

I was heavy, uncertain, but something got a hold on me. After the first lesson I bought all my own climbing gear and I kept on going every week.

Still no one to climb regular with, so I asked climbers with more experience, if I could go climbing with them. I found it scary. New people, the large open climbing hall, everyone seemed to look at me, to think I was weird, no good, I was so insecure. But I was hooked. Hooked!

I grew slowly. With weeks of frustration, days of progress, moments of fear, sometimes with tears, sometimes with anger, but I stayed. Climbing changed me. Physically and mentally. I saw the progress, sometimes very small, sometimes larger, but the line, the growth was clear. And I loved it so much: the puzzle solving, the falling and yet continuing, being afraid but in a safe environment, people who helped, who were better, an example.

New friendships, contacts, they let me see them and what they already could do. And I learned from them and I learned to see myself through the climbing.

I am lighter, much lighter. Yes physically, but also mentally. Stronger , more resilient. More proud. Driven. Also still afraid. Frustration. Angry at a moment of fear. A route with a difficult crux. A step which I dare not take. A hold that is ‘too small’. No, my mind tells me I am small, not good enough…: ” You can’ t do this”. ” This reach is too far for you. ” Never mind! No way! “. I was and I am my own worst enemy and critic. Climbing thought me that.

I want things to change. They have: yes I freeze or fold sometimes. I try more often to push my limits even though I am fearful. I have to. Because the progress is there, and more and more every day. It is not about the degree or difficulty . Those are just the bonus. Yes, 6a is rad. But how did I get there? By being afraid in a 4. Not trusting my feet. Not reading a route all that well. Scared of pushing my limits.

That is what climbing is: find your limit and go beyond it. Cross that line. Together and alone. Your very own fight, my fight, which you share with your climbing-partner. Watching. Asking. Learning. And on with your own process.

I love climbing. And now I even love myself more.
