Bio

 
I’m a climber and adventure lover from Stockholm, Sweden. I started climbing when I was 11 years old and started out as a competition climber. I competed internationally during my junior years and fro some years as a senior and I’ve placed 6th at the World Championships and World Games. When I started university I transitioned more to rock climbing and since I finished my studies I focus fully on sport climbing outside. In the coming years I’m looking forward getting more experience within big wall and traditional climbing. Eventually I want to master all climbing disciplines!

Some highlights:
Pure Imagination (8c+ / 5.14c)
Golden (8c / 5.14b)
Solitary Man (8c / 5.14b), 3rd go
