My name’s Julian, I was born in 1992 in Munich, South Germany, and I escaped to the much more beautiful city of Innsbruck, Austria, in 2012. From cycling to mountain sports...including radical changes in discipline. I enjoy drinking coffee, like granite much more than limestone, and think cracks are easier than ledges. With my background as an endurance athlete, I feel more than comfortable on long days at high altitudes, whether I’m in climbing shoes, mountain boots or ski boots. I find sitting down stressful and I like being outside, so I chose “mountain guide” as my profession!
Moritz Oberrauch about Julian Resch
Julian has lived and studied in Innsbruck, the capital of the (Eastern) Alps, for over 10 years. If he’s not hanging off some rockface or other, running up a mountain with his tongue hanging out or causing the mountain guide trainers to question their career choices, he’ll be in the workshop repairing (butchering) bikes and thinking “this is not my beautiful life”. Only one thing helps: a lot of coffee and getting back over the Brenner pass as quickly as possible into the promised land where pizza and Birra Moretti flow.
Do you sing in the shower?
No, but I do drink beer and coffee in the shower.
What do you write in the summit book?
“And now I’ll be off boozing with Reinhold M.”
What is your essential pizza topping?
Everything’s okay as long as there’s no pineapple involved.
If you had to move to a different country, where would it be?
