Michael Lerjen Interview

What’s your favorite spot/location to be active?
Patagonia, Zermatt Alps
How do you prepare for a project/contest (info/training/nutrition)?
As a guide I’m on the road almost every day, so the most important thing is to keep relaxed.
What are your biggest accomplishments?
Hard to say. Maybe some routes on the North Face of the Matterhorn or a few climbs in Patagonia. But at the end of the day every climb can be the best!
What are your next goals (related to your sport)?
Keep having fun!
Who do you look up to, who motivates you?
To my grandfather because he was a really strong man, to Jerry Moffat because of his way of going after his goals and to Erhard Loretan for his calmness and strangeness.
Who is your favorite person to hang out with/be active with?
Patrik Aufdenblatten and Jorge Akermann in Patagonia

Read a book.
