Quirin Herterich

Born and grown up in the german Alps I always had a strong relation to the mountains. I started rockclimbing in the early age of three years with my dad. Skiing and skimountaineering has always been a big part of my life from the age of four on. Also travelling and exploring new remote areas is a thing I learned from my dad at a very young age, summitting e.g. the highest mountain of Norway (Galdhøpiggen) in 2004.

I tryed an endless amount of outdoor sports yet such as rockclimbing, kayaking, freeriding, skimountaineering and many more. However since I succesfully ascended my first highline in 2013, highlining has been my biggest passion so far. Still I am constantly trying to combine highlining with other sports such as skimountaineering and rockclimbing. While Highlining I am always looking for new and challenging projects – and I love to push the limits of the sport. The biggest value in my life is the time I spend outside with good friends!

  4. Welcome to our athletes team: Quirin Herterich!

    Welcome to our raed athlete team: Quirin Herterich! Quirin is an extraordinary highliner. He holds the record for the longest distance ever walked on a Highline after walking non-stop 2,500 meters on the 2.8 km line in Norway 2018. This picture was taken in August 2019 at one of his homespots in Bavaria, Germany. Originally he wanted to go to Chamonix at this time but conditions there did not allow the team to do their project - so he invited the whole crew to hang out at his place and highline the bavarian homespots.
