I got into climbing when my brother took me along climbing when I was 14 years old. That’s how I started. Together we went to the bouldering centre in Flirsch. I enjoyed climbing from the very first minute. After my first visit to the hall, I went climbing regularly. Later I climbed a lot with my sister and Bernd (Zangerl). He took us to a rock face for the first time. Together we checked out the various boulder regions in Switzerland. I can very well remember my first rock face experience. Back then I could hardly imagine that climbing on a natural surface could be so much better than what I did before. It was an incisive experience for me. I love being outdoors, travel to various regions to try out cool alpine routes, multipitches or sportclimbs. Climbing and the lifestyle involved are important to me. I enjoy travelling with my friends and discovering new place – adventures, if you will. And I like to rise to a challenge and master it. Whenever I manage something that is at my personal limit, it’s an incredible feeling that encourages me to carry on and to explore new boundaries. Over the winter months I train a lot indoors. In the summer I try to spend most of my time outdoors on the rock face. At the moment i also work parttime in a hospital as radiology assistant. But I do have enough spare time in which I can go climbing.
