Solveig is an accomplished young sport climber and international competition climber. Her dedication to climbing has seen her on the podium in national competitions and led her to amass a notable outdoor ticklist, including redpoint ascents up to 8c/+ and flashes up to 8b+.
Solveig, who is from Steißlingen in southern Germany, was introduced to climbing by her father when she was six. She started competing when she was nine years old and at 11 started training with a professional coach in northeast Switzerland. 2014 marked a milestone in her progression as one of her best competition years, where she won the German Lead Cup and made the finals at the European Youth Cup in Imst. The following year she qualified for the German National Team.
In 2016 she qualified for the World Youth Championship in Guangzhou and placed 16th.
“This was a new experience for me,” says Solveig, “flying to another continent for a competition with the national youth team, to a country with a different culture where I had never been before.”
