Since his first encounter with climbing in 2000, the sport and lifestyle has been his biggest passion. After only a year of climbing, Magnus won the Norwegian Youth Championship, and a year later he did his first 8a. He quickly became one of the best climbers in Norway. Recognizing that there is a huge gap between the Norwegian and international level, he set his sights on doing well internationally. Magnus started traveling and was able to learn from the very best in the world, although he has always been his own coach and manager. ‘It’s more work, but greater is the reward, as I only have myself to thank for most of it.’
Today Magnus is a full time climber and is sponsored by: Norrøna, Petzl, Beal, Tyrili Klatring and 5.10.
