about Mantle

„ Mantle initially convinced me with its chalk and liquid chalk. A difficult topic that every climber sees a little differently. For me, it was quickly clear how grip is more than just power must feel on the fingers. Moreover, the high-end hand balm must never be empty for me. “

Questions to Kevin

What do you usually do in your spare time?

Since my job takes up at least 45 hours a week, I spend every free minute training or on the rocks of this world.

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

I sometimes forget to pay an important appointment or a bill. But I always have the beta for the crux at hand 😄

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

For 2022, after my moving 2021, I planned an orderly routine between training and rock climbing. It simply took a while to arrive in the Bavarian Forest. The focus for me is on 3 first ascents in the Frankenjura, for which I just wan't strong enough last year. Long-term goals: Climb more 8c's again, tackle 9a in the long term.
