BiographyEdit

Stöhr started climbing with her parents when she was a child.[7]

In 2002, she started competing in the youth speed, lead and bouldering disciplines. In 2002, she won the silver medal in speed Youth B at the World Youth Championship in Canteleu, France.[8] From 2002 to 2005 she competed in the European Youth Cup in lead, taking the third place in 2002,[9] the second place in 2003,[10] the fourth place in 2004[11] and the first place in 2005.[12]

In 2004, at age sixteen, she started to compete in the senior categories.
