Headcrash 8c by Franziska Dietz after 4 years of climbing

Tuesday, 12 October

Franziska Dietz, who started rock climbing in 2017, reports on Insta that she has done her first 8c, Headcrash in Frankenjura. Prior to beginning climbing, the 23-year-old had just been dancing and boxing for a while. Within two years of climbing, like five days a week, she did her first 8b. (c) Markus Jung

How can you explain this amazing progress?
I think passion and ambition are my keys to success 😊. I just try to have fun and to make the best out of every session 😊.

Did you focus on outdoors directly from the beginning?
Yes definitely! One of my friends showed me how to belay at „Freudenhaus“ :) I‘ve never climbed toprope 😊.

Do you follow a training program or just climb as much as possible?
I would say climbing as much as possible but I like training strength and bouldering aswell. But I don‘t have a plan:) I started an education as physiotherapist in September so I just climb whenever I can :)
