“Have fun!"

Jvan Tresch grew up in the center of Switzerland, in the canton Uri. Surrounded by a magnificent mountain wilderness, he had no other choice but to start climbing! With his brother Michi, they began to explore the rock of Switzerland.

At the age of 16, Jvan was admitted to the national team and won several swiss championships and international titles. Bouldering was not really popular at that time and instead of a gidebook you took steel brushes with you! Soon, there was only one thing in his head – climbing all year long!

He climbed all the time with his brother michi and they were the perfect team – they were called the freak brothers!! Since then, Jvan has been climbing several big walls around the world with different partners.
