Yosemite National Park
Kalifornien, USA

It’s just such an awe inspiring place. The walls are so big and clean, they’re perfect to me. So many classic routes and yet still so much room for first ascents or new adventures. Yosemite has been the sight of almost all my best climbing, from learning how to place gear to learning how to solo walls. I also have memories of camping here as a kid with the whole family. It’s always been a special place. It still smells like home.
