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 movies[1. 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.]. 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.
