Käthe Atkins

„ In the summer in 2009 my family and I went on a trekking tour in Nepal and our guide took us to his favourite rock on the last day. I took off from the ground, held two big rocks in my hands and instantly fell in love with the sport. Since then the passion for climbing has never left me and it is still hard to get me off the wall. “

about Mantle

„ Over the years I have tried various different kinds of chalk and I still like the Mantle chalk the best. The consistency is simply ideal: the mixture of chunks and finer chalk powder is perfect to me. No matter if on the rock, bouldering or lead, no matter what the weather is like, it always supports me. “

Questions to Käthe

What do you usually do in your spare time?

Basically I climb all the time, either indoors or outdoors. Apart from that I enjoy spending time with friends but this often results in climbing, too. Moreover, I enjoy reading, drinking coffee and cooking.

Give us a fun fact about you or a remarkable experience in your climbing career.

At the age of 12 I tore both growth plates of my middle fingers and was unable to climb for almost two years. I tried different sports like gymnastics, football, hockey and karate. I liked every sport but it simply was not the same as climbing. As soon as my injuries have healed a bit, I finally went back to the climbing gym with a huge smile on my face.

What are your long term and/or short term goals?

At the moment there are so many uncertainties regarding competitions or travelling due to the Corona pandemic. So, I'm currently trying to climb and train as much as possible to become stronger in order to come back stronger in rockclimbing and competition climbing next season. My long term plans are to travel a lot and participate in competitions.
