WHAT GOT YOU INTO CLIMBING? My godfather took me to the climbing gym in Innsbruck once. After that, I was asked whether I would like to train with the Innsbruck climbing team. Of course I took up the offer with pleasure and since climbing was so much fun, I've never stopped.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS? Qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and winning a medal there is my big dream. I've still got plenty of goals for on the rocks as well! I want to climb more 9b routes and push my limits even further with routes graded 9b+ and 9c. The same goes for bouldering with boulders graded 8c to 9a. Later on, I really want to prove my skills in big wall climbing.
