Biography[edit]

Stöhr started climbing with her parents when she was a child.[7]

In 2002 she started competing in the youth speed, lead and bouldering disciplines. In 2002 she won the silver medal in speed Youth B at the World Youth Championship in Canteleu, France.[8] From 2002 to 2005 she competed in the European Youth Cup in lead, taking the third place in 2002,[9] the second place in 2003,[10] the fourth place in 2004[11] and the first place in 2005.[12]

In 2004, at age sixteen, she started to compete in the senior categories. In 2004 and 2005 she competed in both lead and bouldering World Cup, and starting in 2006 she focused only on bouldering, where she achieved her greatest success. Her first podium came in 2005 in Moscow and her first victory in 2006 in Grindelwald. In 2007 she won her first World Championship title, in Avilés, Spain,[13] and in 2008 her first Bouldering World Cup title.[14]

In 2009 and 2010 the World Cup title was won by Akiyo Noguchi. In 2010, in the Swiss Magic Wood, Stöhr achieved her highest grade on natural rock, with the ascent of The Riverbed, 8B (V13). This ascent represents the second female ascent of an 8B boulder in history, after Angie Payne in August 2010.[15][16]

In 2011 Stohr won both the World Championship in Arco, Italia,[17] and the World Cup title.[18]

In 2012 she won her third World Cup Title[19] and in 2013 her fourth title, winning seven events out of eight.[4]
