Niklas Wiechmann spent most of his childhood in the woods or his parents´climbing gym, where he started setting when he was a teenager.
His passion for climbing led him to quit university and took him out of Germany to London, Singapore and even Australia, where he lived from 2017 – 2019.
Before that he co-founded two bouldering gyms in Germany, set trainings camps & comps on international level and discovered a new love for filming.
He returned to Germany in August 2019 and still travels around the world.
As part of Beta Routesetting he sets, hosts workshops, records & edits videos and published behind the scene Climbing World Cup reports – always with a cup of tea in hand.
