Bored Couple Turn Bedroom Into Tenerife Mountain Range

This is the locked-down pair who built a full indoor climbing wall on their bedroom ceiling after their climbing holiday to Tenerife was grounded due to COVID-19.

The climbing fanatics Judith van Kerkhof and Quinten Lokhorst were left reeling after the pandemic put the brakes on their dream trip.

However, not to be deterred – they decided if they could not go climbing in Tenerife, then they would have to bring the climbing to them.

The inventive pair crafted a full climbing wall on the ceiling of their bedroom in the Dutch capital Amsterdam.

The couple bought plates, beams, paint and climbing equipment and within a week they converted their bedroom into a real climbing hall.

Quinten told local media: “We were immediately asked if we could have sex on the ceiling, but we haven’t tried that yet.”

Judith joked: “Just climbing is hard enough.”

The bizarre creation has garnered the pair much praise who enjoy trying it out over a bottle of wine.

To complete the climbing experience, the couple hung beautiful images of the mountain on Tenerife.

Quinten, who is a furniture maker who studied interior design, added: “It’s like we are still on vacation.”

Normally the couple climbs together three times a week in a climbing hall in Amsterdam and say they have missed it “tremendously” during the COVID-19 restrictions.

They didn’t expect their creation to be such a success but now every day, the two of them can be found hanging from the ceiling of their bedroom.

Quinten laughed: “We always come up with different paths that keep it exciting.

“Except for a small bruise, the climbing is still going like clockwork.”
