Born and living in Dresden (East-Germany) it's only a short hop to the Saxon Switzerland, the greatest sandstone-area
of Germany. Here I made my first climbs. And I did so for over 20 years. Sandstone, trad climbing and nothing else!
Then came new friends into my life. Since 1999 I found sportclimbing a great experience. Now a days I also like
Limestone, Porphyre, Granite...
I'm married, have two children (27 and 24 years old). And if not climbing, I'm sitting as a Software-developper in a stuffy office.
Best Climbing Experience
Climbing "Stroke of Lightning" (UIAA 7) at "Grosser Lorenzstein" and "Direct Valley Route" (UIAA 7-) at "Hoellenhund" (Hells Dog, both summits Saxon Switzerland).
