Touring

Born in Switzerland the connection to the mountains was there. I started skiing when i was three years old and climbing when i was eleven years old. During highschool I did some competition climbing and at the same time developed mountaineering and alpine climbing skills. Soon it was clear that the mountains were my absolute passion. I did my first expedition when I was 16 years old to Aconcagua. After this many more followed to open new routes, climb unclimbed peaks and ski interesting lines. These expeditions brought me to the Indian Himalaya, Patagonia, Iran, Alaska, BC, Antarctica,... If I am not away on an expedition or climbing somewhere around the world, you find me in the Alps always looking for new challenges or sharing my passion while guiding. I was a member of the first female expedition team of the German Alpine Club and I am a Swiss IFMGA Mountain Guide.
