Whats your story?

Since I was born, I was going in the mountain with my parents, my 2 brothers and 1 sister. Then I went up alone above my home town in the middle of the Alps. First trail running then higher, climbing and mountaineering. After many years of practicing those sport I became stronger and focused on the futuristic sport of dry-tooling.
My passion is ice-climbing but nowadays winter are warmer with less ice and if you want to climb hard stuff you have to go on the rock!
Today I have a baby boy and enjoying the fatherhood. Still climbing stronger with many exciting projects to come!!


What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Reading guide books, multipitches and gullies with her girlfriend and packing for a next ascent!


What is your favorite aspect of climbing?

Having fun with friends and fighting against getting pumped!


Whats your most memorable climbing experience?

Climbing the Grandes Jorasses North Face (French Alps, Mont Blanc massif). 1200m, M9 mixed climbing with a bivy on the wall in the middle of the face and 12d pitches to finish!


Whats your recent climbing accomplishment?

The most difficult route in the World, A line above the sky, D15 in Italy.50m roof!! Only one try per day was allowed since it is so hard that you dont have enough energy to try one more time in a day. Did it the second day before had to leave!


Where is your favorite climbing place? Why?

Chamonix! Because it has everything, from bouldering, sport climbing, ice climbing, multipitches, gullies, free riding to dry-tooling! In a remote place at high altitude.

Red, blue and orange
