JORG VERHOEVEN  Born in 1985 in Amsterdam, he now lives in Innsbruck.
 In 1997, Jorg discovered climbing and immediately knew: that is it.

He began climbing everything he could find in Amsterdam, trees, buildings, etc. Jorg had visited the Alps with his parents, but only for hiking. And even then he took advantage of every opportunity to climb up anything that he saw. “For me, it was amazing to pull myself up on something.” His approach to climbing has changed over the year, but the important thing is the same: climbing is his life.

Other hobbies are skiing, mountaineering, literature and playing the piano.
