Belgium with Holland is sometimes described as the 'lowlands', we have no mountains, the highest point is about 600 meters.

From Kortrijk it's over 200 km to find a place to practice climbing if it was not for http://www.blueberry-hill.be, this adventure sport centre houses a 13 meter wall with varying difficulties from easy to hard depending on the place on the wall and the colour of grips/support used.

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made

This is my first pano with my new D50 and 10.5mm F2.8 lens, coming home I noticed I used 1600 ISO but on a closer look this was no mistake as I needed 1/15s to use F8, being there the place look’s well lit but with these lights that's a false impression.
Also notice the 3 types of light, so used the sunny setting to get natural colours.

Also a first for me is the use of a 3 meter pole, the camera cannot be reached and the IR remote did not work without being in the pictures until I sticked on a paper reflector next to the receiver.

And yes there are errors, some ropes are diconnected but these are no stitsching errors, I just could not ask the climbers to hang there for a couple of minutes, so got errors between the roundshots and the upshot, I did not even try to correct them in PS due to the complicated backdrop.
