Sofie Paulus loves climbing and nature. However, as outdoor climbing often means taking the car to get to the crag, climbing becomes a “motor sport”, and is therefore not very eco-friendly. Sofie tries to take the bike to go climbing. Though she renounces on peak climbing energy when she reaches the crag by bike the overall feeling is much better afterwards. Feel inspired by following Sofie on her fascinating way to balance different interests and breaking habits.

Over a year ago @lenamarie.mllr first suggested the term #greenpoint after climbing Prinzip Hoffnung by public transport, to describe the idea of climbing a route and using the bike, the feet and/or public transports for the approach, not being aware the term already existed. Now together with @sofie.paulus the two climbers would like to introduce this concept by the name ecopoint and bring together inspiring stories with the hashtag #ecopointclimb
