Whats your story?

When I was a kid, I moved around from sport to sport, pretty much trying everything. When I was stumbled into climbing it was with my Dad. It was almost the end of my school year and he wanted to surprise me with something fun to do.

It was amazing for me, I was completely terrified but I loved it. My dad pushed me to take part in one of the children courses and I pretty much have been climbing ever since.

I started competing six months later when I was 12.

For me the difference between climbing and everything else I did back then(and also today) is when I was up on the rock I was purely connecting with myself. With myself, in a way I can’t find any where else.

 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

In my spare time I enjoy cooking simple things and going to eat outside(really much)!

 

What is your favorite aspect of climbing?

My favorite thing about climbing is the non-stopping battle, the thrilling scene of being able to do something you thought was impossible.

 

What’s your most memorable climbing experience?

My first 7A is one of my most memorable moments. I was really scared because all of the strong climbers in the club was around and it made me really nervous. But I was really happy that day, I entered the big boys club.

 

What’s your recent climbing accomplishment?

My recent climbing accomplishment is "luna park" 8c, second go.

 

Where is your favorite climbing place? Why?

My all time favorite place has to be kalymnos, truly is paradise.

 

What colors you like best?

Favorite color is red or green, depends on my mood.

 

Whats your favorite food?

Depends on my mood

 

What’s else you would like to share with Kailas Friends?

My thoughts I want to share-

One of the beautiful things about climbing is, when you are out there by yourself, all the masks are coming off, its just you vs the rock, its the best way to really get to know yourself, or the person whom you climbing with.
