Juho Knuuttila is from Imatra, Finland. Having grown up amid forest and lakes, he hadn’t seen a mountain till age 11. After seeing his first, he was hooked. Spending all his time working out how to spend more time in the hills.
By 2015, aged 19, he’d sent the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn, and the Grand Jorasses. He’d also soloes a few 7000m peaks. Joho likes all styles of climbing, noting that each lends itself to improving his overall abilities in the mountains.
