 "I’ve enjoyed climbing from early childhood. Why? I was born in Nice, there’s rock everywhere and the weather’s good year round, so going climbing is easy. My parents climbed. When I was little my parents brought with them all the time when they went climbing. I feel right at home climbing. Until the age of 13, I really enjoyed climbing the cliffs of the French Riviera, but now, after having traveled with Team Petzl, it’s not the same type of enjoyment."
