Tierra Boulder Battle

My problem - long and crimpy =)
What a fun weekend! The Tierra Boulder Battle took place at Klättercentret K2 here in Stockholm this Saturday. Me and five other girls were competing, Alex Puccio, Melissa Le Nevé, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, Therese Johansen and Anja Hodann. It was an interesting competition format as we all got to set our own problems and work them together before the actual competition, which really made it a great show! It was so much fun competing again and hanging out with the other girls... And I got 2nd place =) 

I also got the pleasure to meet John Ellison, the founder of Climbers Against Cancer, this weekend. Such an amazing and inspiring person! Big ups to Björn Pohl and Klättercentret for organizing yet another great event!  

I hope you all enjoyed the show if you were watching! Here is the replay of the compeition.

Check out the video by Sandstones Media to see what happened backstage...

This made my day ❤

I gave away my old climbing shoes to a charity project for climbers in Iran. The shoes got delivered today! So inspiring to see all the photos of happy faces and being a part of making it possible for these people to go climbing too.

España in pictures

I am back home after three amazing weeks in Spain. It was a great trip, climbing super cool routes, having fun with my friends, being outside in the nature - just doing some of the things I love the most life! In addition, I am very pleased that I managed to climb my hardest route to date, Pati Noso 8c/+ in Siurana. Wohoo! 

While I was in Spain I did a little interview for the Catalan website Sense Pell, check it out here if you want to read it.

Here is a collage of pictures from my trip, I hope you enjoy it... =)
