Alex is one of Germany's top female climbers. She was born in Schramberg, Black Forest in 1982 and grew up in a climbing family, as she explains: “My parents decided to become rock climbers, wore spandex leggings, cow bell sized hexentrics and metal helmets! We went to Battert, Pfalz and Dolomites and sampled adventuresome family vacations.”
