Franz Widmer

"Bouldering is my absolute passion"

 

Profile

 

First name: Franz

What brought you to climbing?
I went climbing for the first time in the Furka Pass when I was eleven. I loved the feeling of the rough granite under my fingers and working my way up step by step. This still motivates me to go out on the cliffs today.

Dreams and goals? 
It's great when you manage to combine an almost impossible sequence of movements. That's what I aim for.
