My first trip to Yosemite took place in 2010 together with Hansjörg Auer. It was my first real crack climbing experience and everything felt so hard that I could barely move. The big cracks were the worst (and of course they still are)…. The process of learning something new raised my motivation for this style of climbing and eventually I started to dream about freeclimbing a route on El Cap. It seems just like yesterday, when I...

Unendliche Geschichte


Posted on 23.12.15

Put up in 1990 on the Seventh Kirlichspitze by Beat Kammerlander, Unendliche Geschichte was back then the hardest multi-pitch route in the world. Despite the ongoing progress in other branches of climbing, it still remains a powerful symbol of its time; of the unique art of climbing, physical and mental strength and the rules that no one was ever even thinking of breaking. There was something mysterious about the line whose...

This spring we spent most of our time sport climbing around Vorarlberg and Tirol. It was a lot of fun to stay close to home after travelling so much and to climb beautiful classics like „Nobody is perfect“ in Bürs or „Schwarzer Schwan“ and „Seewächter“ in Ötztal. I was also super happy to send my hardest sport route so far. It reminded me of times in the past, when I had my entire focus on bouldering – to be stubborn, to keep on...

It was always one of my goals to climb in the southern part of France in the „Gorges du Verdon“. But somehow i never managed to visit this place. This time after Melloblocco we were sure to extend our trip and drive directly from the Melloblocco event to Verdon. After 7 hours of driving we arrived in this dream place. Jacopo was there a few times before and he showed me some cool lines which you could see from the street. The whole...

The 12th edition of Melloblocco took place again in the beautiful Val Masino and Val di Mello. Also this year the event was followed by thousands of motivated Boulder-fanatics. As every year the organisation cleaned up some new boulders, and put a prize money on them for the Mellobloccers who wanted to challege their selfes. But this is not the reason why so many boulderers took part at this event. It is more about the spirit. Meeting...

…this time no words just some impressions about my USA trip this April. It was my first time in Joshua Tree turing a BD-photoshooting and I was in Salt Lake City for the Blackdiamond Athletes summit and last but not least for the “Rockproject Tour”. Beside of that i was lucky to discover some new great climbing spots and hanging out with a great team of climbers. It was #supernicetasty 🙂   thanks to Colette...
