"This year I feel like I was really well prepared for the competition season, all the national comps in the beginning of the year went really well, but than everything got cancelled because of the corona crisis of course. Luckily I had the opportunity to keep on training during the lockdown period so I decided to shift my focus for this year on rock climbing, which I never had time for before because I always focus on competitions. Than this September I went to Magic Wood for the first time and I really really liked it here so I decided to stay for a bit longer and try to climb some hard boulders. The style here really suits me as well, and Sofa Surfer especially because it’s physical as well as technical and I really enjoy that!

I am currently here on my own, living in my bus, but there are some other strong climbers here that I climb with. It’s not so busy here though, probably because of all the covid stuff. I know some people from the Netherlands who were supposed to come here but they were not allowed to go into Switzerland anymore."
