About Nico Favresse
Born and raised in flat country Belgium, I guess I wasn’t meant to be a rock climber. While sailing in the mediterranean sea me and my brothers started scrambling above the water in order to explore caves. Slowly the scrambling side of our explorations became our main focus and naturally, with no climbing shoes or any knowledge, climbing became one of our favorite holiday activities. Later, when I was 15, I discovered proper climbing in the climbing gyms of Belgium, but it was only a matter of time for me to transpose climbing into a more global adventure.

In 2003, a trip to Ratikon, Switzerland introduced me to multi-pitch routes and in 2004 a trip to Yosemite introduced me to Big wall and traditional climbing. These experiences completely changed my approach and focus in climbing and brought me on my quest to free climb Big walls all over the world. 

I am doing what I love and committed to be able to fully live my passions. Whether it’s a one move boulder problem, a big wall in alpine environment or a fine tune on my guitar… It’s rock and I love it all!!
