Klem Loskot, a bouldering pioneer in the late 90′s, was immortalized for me and many others when he was showcased in the early Dosage movies1. After taking several years off from climbing in the public eye, Loskot is back. He’s’ back to establishing hard boulders near his home in Austria, and Rock & Ice caught up with him to see what he’s been up to:
I got the passion back by climbing in my home woods and I felt like it was 1989 and it was nostalgic. I had no sponsors and no publicity and three years ago I wanted to keep it the same. Today I feel like sharing my experience.
This site is almost six years old and today is the first time I’ve ever posted about Loskot. Now we know why.
- I still try to do my best Klem Loskot impression at the gym when I’m encouraging Mrs. Narc to try hard. Needless to say, it worked a lot better for Klem than it did for me. ↩
