Mayan Smith Gobat

Her father was a mountain guide and her mother, though not a technical climber, was also very keen on the outdoors. At age16 she took an alpine climbing course and discovered the mountains. Since then she began properly climbing herself.

Barbara Zangerl

26-year old Barbara Zangerl managed what many climbers dream of – she worked hard and patiently to master a new level of difficulty and was the first woman ever to manage an 8b boulder problem.

Ben Rueck

He was born and raised in Colorado.  As a kid growing up in a small farming community he had no idea what rock climbing was … or even that it existed.  He climbed trees, barns, houses, and horses but never rock. Then one day he was dragged to a local climbing gym and he has been hooked ever since.

Sachi Amma

His father is a mountaineer and he introduced him to climbing, when he was 12 years old. His specialties are hard routes and lead competitions.

Mélissa Le Nevé

Until the age of 10 she lived in the northeast of France, lost in the Vosges Mountains. In addition to a lot of kayaking and skiing she spent the rest of her time climbing trees. Then she moved to Bordeaux and for a few years she tried all kinds of sports.

Stefano Carnati

15-year-old from Como, Northern Italy, Stefano is the current Lead World Champion cat. Youth B. On January 26, 2014 he sent his first 8c+, Deus Irae in Claro, Ticino, Switzerland.
