When did you start climbing and who with?
Both my parents climb, so I grew up at the crags basically and I haven’t grew out of it yet.

If you didn´t climb, what would you probably do with your life?
I climb all my life, I really can’t imagine what I would do if I weren’t climbing.
What is your favourite place in the world?
There are many places I love to return to, but Fontainebleau has a special place in my heart.
What do you like the most about climbing?
Physically I enjoy its complexity and creativity of movements and that I learn something new every time I climb. Socially I like the people who climb and their lifestyle and it is a great way for self-realisation as well.
How long was your longest fall, when and where did it happen?
I have experienced only regular falls while leading but I had a few ugly looking falls while bouldering. A few years ago I have landed on my back away from crash pads while falling of Hélicoptere boulder in Fontainebleau, that took my breath for a while.
Are you scared of falling?
Sometime. There are days when I feel invincible and then there are days when I don’t feel comfortable doing any tricky move little further above last bolt.
Are you scared of anything else?
I am afraid that I will sleep through something important, so I sleep less.
What is your ape index?
15 - tripping over my own arms at times.
