I am a Norwegian competition climber from Norway who loves to climb, train and compete. I am a lead climber, but I also compete in boulder comps, because it's a great experience. Even though I look at my self as a competition climber, I try to climb outdoor as well. Nothing is like a day out in the sun climbing some beautiful routes.
This is my 4th year at the Five Ten team, and i get more and more satisfied with their products. At the moment I'm (still) in love with Jet7, Dragon and Projects. I have tried loads of different shoes and brands, but Five Ten definitely fits my foot the best. Sadely they have stopped producing both the Jet7s and the Projects, so it's time to try some other. I just ordered a pair of Team 5.10, and I'm really excited about that. I tried them last year, and I was really satisfied. It's hard to get them on, but once they're on, they are perfect! Maybe this will be my new competition shoe!?
2011 was my "break through", but i got injured in September so i didn't get the chance to complete and finish the season. I was out for three months, and now, six months later I am more psyked and motivated than ever. I will do everything in my power to complete the best season as possible, and enjoy what I do. I love my life which is full of traveling, training and competing. I have one more year left at school, and after that I will live my life by growing my passion and every day will be filled with joy.
As I said, I am really happy about being a part of the Five Ten team, and continue to climb with their products.
