What do I enjoy about climbing?
There are a million things why I love climbing! I love climbers around the world, I love traveling and exploring new crags. I like the feeling of focus and concentration when trying a hard route, being pumped and exhausted after a long climbing day. I like bouldering with my friends.. and many more!

How did I start with climbing?
I accidentally went to climbing competitions for kids and saw them climbing, and I literally remember how I realized that this is something I would love to do.

Other interests?
My work, cycling, hiking, wakeboarding, reading books, painting...  I have a lot of them :)

Why do I take part in competitions?
To challenge myself, spend time with friends, climb on well-prepared boulders or routes.

Favourite climbing area?
Oliana, Siurana, Polish Jura, Frankenjura.
