Growing up in the heart of the Alps, Barbara (Babsi) has always had a close contact with mountains. Upon first contact with climbing, she was caught right away, and soon became one of the world's best boulderers. In 2009, due to a herniated disc, she had to adapt her climbing, and moved towards high-end sport and alpine climbing. Nowadays she practises all disciplines of the sport, loves to be outdoors and travel to climbing areas all around the world. She quickly gained prominence climbing some of the world's hardest bigwall in Yosemite and on the Eiger. As a next step, Babsi discovered the passion for expedition climbing, travelling to remote places like Pakistan, where her aim is to free climb Trango Tower at 6000m altitude, one of her biggest dreams for the future.
