First of all I want to say

I don’t feel like saying anything profound right now.

Favourite home area

Niederthai, Ötztal

Six words, six statements

CLIMBING: I like  /  ROCK: Granit  /  COMPS: No Comment  /  PLANET EARTH: Guess there are still a few undiscovered places to climb at  /  POLITIC:  Not interested  /  MOTTO:  Don’t have a motto

Six of my favourite places

Niederthai, Yosemite, Patagonia, Thailand, home

One word describes …

BOULDERING: Crashpad  /  ROUTES: Rope  /  PLASTIC: Squadra  /  ALPINISM: Snow  /  NO CLIMBING: Possible?

Three things a woman/man should do

Have fun – together – in a portaledge?

Goals for the future

Don’t know where to start … simply too many things to do!

Final statement

I still don’t feel like saying anything profound right now.
