Hi! My name is Karoline. But everybody calls me Karo. I was born on May 22 in 1995. Currently I live in Innsbruck, where I study law and train with the Austrian Climbing Team.

I started climbing when I was 4 years old. My parents are also climbers, so I was already on the rock as a baby. I would not know what I should do with all my free time without climbing – I guess I would feel pretty bored.

Competitions are a big part of my life, they challenge myself, make pretty much fun and I can travel the world.
During competition breaks or when the comps are over, I love bouldering outside with friends. Bouldering outdoor’s and climbing hard stuff is always a reward for the hard training in the gym.
