A BRIEF CHAT WITH ALEXANDER ROHR
What do you do besides climbing, in your free time?
Climbing is a passion that absorbs me completely and doesn’t leave me much free time. I also enjoy ice climbing, skiing, and doing some mountaineering-style climbing. In addition to carpentry.
We know you have a specific routine that you follow every time before attacking a pitch…
Yes. Three actions that have now become second nature to the point that I almost don’t realize what I’m doing. I always put on the same shoe first, dip my hands in the chalk twice, and take off my shirt.
How many hours do you train a day?
It varies, but at least two to four and a half hours.
What’s your favorite Karpos product?
The Artika Evo Jacket. It’s not too bulky but it always keeps me warm.
