Climbing with passion

The fascination of adventure

Here it is all about personal experiences, about glorious days on rock and ice, and I am pleased to share my stories on this website with you.

What mostly counts, are the experiences made and the insights gained from them – the real values that persist ​​in life.
Interesting encounters, snapshots and great discoveries are exciting, they inspire and make you want more. They fuel the urge for future adventures. Hopefully they will motivate you to go out climbing and inspire your dreams.
My name is Micha Rinn – welcome to my website!
