Feature: INTERVIEW - Alexandra Schweikart
Alex Schweikart in 2012, 4 kbIn this interview Jack Geldard talks to Alexandra Schweikart, one of Germany's top female climbers.

Her travels have taken her big wall climbing in Yosemite, up Alpine North Faces in winter, on hard routes in the Dolomites and even to the UK.

Although she has been trad climbing in North Wales, Alex is virtually unknown in Britain, and in this interview we find out a little bit more about her, how she started climbing, and how climbing fits in to her life.
