IT’S NOT A GAME

#SALEWAFACES

Evolution

#ATHLETESTORY #PUREMOUNTAINGIRLS

My year of 2019 started with a bang. I climbed my hardest routes to date: “Riflessi” and “Cinque Uve”, graded 8c. But way more important is that I started to feel healthy again.

Learning to fly

Backpack on my shoulders, heart in my throat

#SALEWAFACES

It's 3:00 am. Despite the fact that I've been trying to nod off for hours, my mind is having none of it. It keeps wandering, perhaps wanting only to make sure that what I am experiencing is not a dream.

Thomas Friedrich reports his first Eigertour Race

#ATHLETESTORY

#SALEWAFACES

Anna Stöhr: La Résistance

#ATHLETESTORY
