I got into climbing by my parents with an age of 6 years and started climbing 3-4 times a week with an age of 10 years old. Till 1999 I also took part on competitions and in 1996 I won the Youth World Championship in Moscow. From 2000 on I concentrated on doing first ascents in my homearea Frankenjura both in Bouldering and Routeclimbing. In 2002 I climbed my hardest boulder with the 1st ascent of "Gossip" 8C and in 2006 with my hardest route "Corona" 9a+. After my son was born in 2012 I focused again more on bouldering.
