Nina Caprez

Swiss rock climber Nina Caprez became addicted to the wild nature of mountains at 13 when she took up mountaineering. Enchanted by the act of climbing, she threw herself into every discipline of the sport—from world championship competitions, to alpine peaks, bouldering to sport climbing, and finally multipitch, where she's achieved some of the hardest routes on the planet. Today, as one of the world's best rock climbers, she holds the first female ascent of numerous routes in Europe. The big, technical climbs are those that energize her most. "Climbing should be a fun game," she contends. With her positive attitude carrying her ever upward, she stays fiercely motivated, conquering dream route after daunting dream route.
