Die Kletternews der letzten Tage in der Zusammenfassung:
Does the fact that you are trying and sending other routes than FRFM after your return from your USA trip mean that you have given up with it?
No, I haven’t given up on FRFM. But with the weather getting warmer I’m just doing different things. I’m still motivated to send the route. After this last season working on it and falling off the top so many times, I think it’s good to change focus to something else and then come back with fresh motivation. At this point I would really love other climbers to get on it. It’s such a good route and it needs to be climbed; if not by me then by someone else.
Do you ever go to the gym to train, or is it enough to climb outside?
J: Well for me personally I enjoy climbing inside and outside. But before this trip I decided that maybe it was time to try and step it up and put myself on somewhat of a „training“ regiment. So Brion and I probably spent 4 to 5 days a week training at The Tennessee Bouldering Authority for around 3 months leading up to our departure.
B: Weather in the Southeast is unpredictable and often poor for extended periods of time. As a result, I often find myself in the gym more than I would like. But training in the gym has been instrumental in advancing my climbing. In fact, without our local gym, Tennessee Bouldering Authority, this would be a much less interesting interview.
„Tell us about your training.
I train four, five days in a week, most of the year I do bouldering, which is good for power and technique. I begin with speed climbing before the competitions, I do running and fitness exercises. Basically what I do depends on the season of the year and on how I feel. Music is an important part of my training, it gives me energy when I am tired. Very often I look for new sounds and musical inspiration.
What does it mean being an athlete?
For me it means being 100% a professional. It means sacrifice, but also satisfaction when the good results come; it’s a way of life, diet, behavior. Sport and climbing have the first place in my life. All the rest is less important.
In your opinion, which is the most important quality for a competition climber?
A good competitor must be a good fighter. Strength is not as important as determination, and not always a good climber is a good competitor…“
