Toni Lamprecht started climbing when he was 4 or 5 with his father on little boulders and when they hiked in the mountains. At age 12, he started to think more seriously about Alpine stuff and by the time Toni was 14 he finally discovered climbing and he turned into a self proclaimed climbing-junkie. It was all he dreamed about. Toni submersed himself in any kind of climbing he could every day (bouldering, sport or alpine). He really wanted to collect hard sport routes from all over Europe, make first ascents and tick off some of the important limestone alpine routes on the northern rim of the Alps.
