„To me, 2022 has been a roller coaster ride with intense ups and downs.
After a great and productive climbing trip around Spain, the events in my private life precipitated:
My mother passed away, I broke two rips and doctors diagnozed a tumor in my body.
Having climbing projects in my mind encouraged me to recover from the Chemo therapy. This process was harder than any Big Wall project I have ever climbed.
Red pointing „El Chico de Bergara“ 8b+, a 50 meters line in Tarragona, had a big significance to me. With every try, I felt as if I was climbing with my best friend Unai Peréz again -
That´s when I felt my own #VertcialFreedom again.“
