Franzi Dietz, originally from Landshut, moved to the Frankenjura in 2015. For the famous limestone crags? Nope. Back then, she didn't even know you could climb in the area, let alone it being the hotspot of the German climbing scene.
Out of the three universities she got accepted for, Franzi chose Bayreuth. A great decision as it turned out - but it wasn't until two years after her arrival in the city that she found out just how great. She was introduced to climbing by a friend in 2017, who took her to Freudenhaus, explained how to belay and had her make her first ever moves on rock.
Caro Bocek visited Franken for the first time back in 2013. That's when she fell in love and has kept coming back ever since, especially that the stories about historic ascents and the big names behind them have appealed to her as well. A year earlier Caro had met Robert. Their first conversation started around climbing of course. Now Robert’s her husband; back then - her partner in crime and the person who has introduced her to Frankenland.
In the 10 years between her first moves on this pocketed limestone and the 50RP photoshoot, Caro has been looking for challenges in her climbing.
