Share this page

Andy is one of Switzerland’s most prolific sport climbers. Over the last ten years he has delved deep into the climbing game and in the process built up an impressive tick list of grade 8 routes. But it’s not just about the numbers; the beauty of the crags and the creative aspect of new routing are very important to him too. To this end he has made numerous top quality first ascents, significantly expanding the canon of classic sport routes in Switzerland.
