„ I have been living in Erlangen for a few years now and thus in the immediate vicinity of the Frankenjura. Of course, this is not only due to my studies, but above all to the countless rocks right on my doorstep. In the past, I have mainly climbed on the rope but for some time now, I've been discovering bouldering more and more for myself. “

about Mantle

„ For a long time I have been looking for a chalk that doesn't provide dry hands in the gym only but also on rock. And I found that with Mantle. “

Questions to Maximilian

What do you usually do in your spare time?

Currently my life is limited to a few aspects: climbing, studying, checking the weather forecast and working a lot. For a few years now, I have been in charge of route setting at Blockhelden in Erlangen, where one of the largest bouldering gyms in the world is currently being built.

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

My four hour stay in Corsica is probably a suitable story regarding this question. Originally it was planned to spend several days climbing on the island but due to "certain moods" of my companions I was forced to drive all the way to the very south of the island in order to take the ferry to Sardenga in the afternoon on the day of our arrival instead of getting a chance to actually touch some rock.

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

My goals have definitely changed in the past few months. At the moment, I'm about to finish my final exams and I'm sitting at my desk a lot. Unfortunately, there is only time for a few hangboard sessions in between. But the list of things to do after the exams in March keeps growing ;)
