Juliane’s coordination and balance led her to be the youngest German climbing champion back in 2006 when she was only 16 years old. But at the age of 18, she decided to commit herself exclusively to the challenging sport of bouldering from then on. In bouldering, the routes are more complicated and the challenges more intense. Juliane knew that bouldering suited her better than classic rope climbing, where strength is much more important. So in 2009, Juliane won her first German championship in bouldering and subordinated school and studies to concentrate on the sport. In 2014, she reached her goal by winning the world title. Even today, as she recounts the moment on a roof terrace in Cologne (her newly adopted home), she gets goose bumps.
