climbing since 1997
What motivates me the most about climbing is undoubtedly its creative aspect, and all the possibilities it can offer when you want to mix shapes and movement: a particular passage, the shape of a rock, its color. Also the places are attractive, they can be unconventional, abandoned, or disused places..places that perhaps thanks to climbing change their appearance and nature. I like to play with all these elements, I mix them and I mix with them. When I do, I feel I can express what I want and what I feel. The rest comes later. Climbing is music!
Advice for newbies
My advice for beginners is to never lose sight of the playful aspect of climbing. Obsessing over grades and reaching the goal at any cost can easily make us forget all that spontaneity that is the reason why we all climb: having fun!
