I started climbing at the age of 12. Six months later I participated in my first competition, and I knew right away what I wanted to do – climb, train and compete. I won the national championship after one year of climbing. After many victories in the youth category at national competitions, I started competing in the adult category and later also exploring international competitions.  I have been competing in the European Youth Cup since 2008, and my level and motivation have rised from year to year.

I would like to thank my sponsors Bergans of Norway, Five Ten Europe, Varri the distributor of Petzl and Beal, the National Federetion and my local climbing team “Kolsås Klatreklubb” for making it possible to travel around the world to pursue my dreams. As well as my beloved parents and family, friends and other important supporters. And a big thank you to my coach, Stian Christophersen.
