Afra Hönig

„ I have been climbing for over 25 years now, sometimes more and sometimes less successfully. The fun of climbing senselessly up any rock has now become my profession. But that's mainly because of my competition results, which enabled me to become a member of the german armed forces sports support group and thus get paid for climbing. A dream! “

about Mantle

„ For climbing chalk is as important as climbing shoes. Just like there are differneces in quality between climbing shoes there are also differences between chalk. The Mantle Chlak simply has the best grip on rock and on plastic which enables you to hold on to small slippery holds even on hot days ;-) “
