Why do we fall? So that we can get up again. Andrea Maruna has shown the meaning of this saying in her own life. In the early summer of 2006 she fell 30 metres while climbing the (8a+/8b) rated route "Keep the red flag flying". Despite suffering severe injuries, this spirited Viennese woman refused to let herself be disheartened. As a sports scientist and physiotherapist, she knows that health also depends on mental strength. That, and her natural lust for life, achieved the incredible. Two years after her accident, Andrea was back climbing better than ever: 8a+, 8b, 8b+. What is all this leading to? Only Andrea and her joie de vivre know that.
