La théorie des cordes 8c by Solveig Korherr

19 April 2022

Solveig Korherr has done La théorie des cordes (8c) in St Léger. "Superb line! The day started with low expectations in the morning because of the heat, but ended up to be the perfect sending day with some windy and really dry conditions in the afternoon. So psyched for the big fight I had. 4 days."

The 23-year-old did her first 8c only three years ago and now she has done 20 routes 8c to 9a (video). Until age 18, her focus was competition.

How can you explain your great progress over the last few years?
I always try to maintain a high level of training discipline in between rock climbing trips. Over the last few years, I figured out a training routine that seems to work well for my climbing performance outdoors. I mainly train on the hang- and campusboard for some finger strength and lock-off training. I also use the moonboard a lot which definitely helped me to get better at dynamic moves because I always used to be a very static climber. I like using the spray wall for some intervall training to improve some power-endurance/ basic endurance especially three/ two weeks before a trip.

For me, a good balance between indoor and outdoor climbing is also important to always keep the psych high. Climbing in a lot of different places with completely different styles helped me to become a better and more varied climber as well.
