Bio

"Climbing is just so much fun and I love all of it! Get out and play"

Fabian Buhl was born on November 2nd, 1990. He lives in Oberstaufen, in Bavaria, although he is currently studying geology at the University of Innsbruck. He has been practising sports since he was a child, especially downhill skiing and triathlon. The poetic gesture of movement and the beauty of the surrounding landscapes have always fascinated Fabian.
He first started to climb on easy routes and then slowly developed the desire to grow as a climber. He enrolled at the local gym in Scheidegg and began to make friends with a group of climbers with whom he travelled to Switzerland, France and Italy. These climbing trips changed both his approach to the sport and his dedication to training. Today, Fabian can boast some very difficult climbs including Silbergeier, Nirwana and Prinzip Hoffnung as well as a 9a redpoint.
He is an incredibly versatile and not only in climbing. In 2018 he went for an expedition to Pakistan established "The Big Easy", then he climbed "IUR fb8b+" in Cresciano and after all that directly he went to Chamonix to climb the "Leseure" and "Walker Spur" single push. Afterwards he went to the Canadian Rockies for big mountaineering projects.
