When and how did you get into climbing and what kept you interested / fascinated in the sport?
I started climbing when I was 10 years old. My father climb since many years ago. I put a lot of time before start to climb but when I started I no longer stop. I love being outside.
Who was your childhood hero and do you consider yourself a role model now? Does it influence you at all that other people look up to you?
I don't actually have a hero but I am very impressed by climbers like Chris Sharma, Alex Megos, Dave Graham , Adam Ondra ... They looks so strong and so fun. I am not influenced by the look of others in general but sometimes I have to admit to attach a little importance.
What were the most important milestones in your life so far, both in climbing and in everyday life? Did you immediately recognize them as such or only later on?
In first stop the football and begin to climb. My first 8a one year after , my first 9a 3 years after and this summer my redpointed of "Le Cadre" at Céuse. All of these moments was a kind of revelation for me that I found my way ,my passion: Climbing.
What were your greatest failures / setbacks / injuries? How did you cope with them and how did you come back from them?
I remember the first time I went in Le Cadre at Céuse, I was able to do all the movements exept one of them. This was the end of the holydays. I dreamed this route all the winter and I was fortunate to redpoint this "King line" one year later.
What is your favorite climbing related story / experience?
My story with "Le cadre" for sure because in terms of pure difficulty this may not be the most difficult but it was the first time I doubted especially during two months (August and September) during which I could not go at Céuse. This route is so nice and Céuse is so special for me.
What most people don't know about me
I am able to "sleep" on the ground just for climb the day after in my project, like the last summer in Céuse.
