Two passionate climbers who like to share their experiences with you and everybody else in the world.


Hohhot, Inner-Mongolia, China

The Crazy Climbing Monkeys

Background of Dennis and Marianne

Marianne

Marianne van der Steen

Professional rock/ice monkey

Has always been stronger then the other kids and did her first pull-ups before she did her first steps.

Movement is her addiction and in climbing it all perfectly comes together. Getting better, improving, learing is what she always searches for.

Studied several things but prefers the outdoors. Likes to write and lives also in the VW T3 Syncro together with Dennis.

Dennis

Dennis van Hoek

Professional rock/ice monkey

Fell out of a tree at the age of 3, from then on he always wanted to become a better climber. His whole life is in the picture of climbing.

Ever since he discovered iceclimbing, he has been inseperable with his ice-tools.

As an Industrial Designer he has a passion for designing climbing equipment.

Collects old climbing stuff and has one other hobby, the VW T3 Syncro. It is not just his van, it's his home.
