Petra has always loved mountains. She started skiing when she was little but didn't discover climbing until she was 25. But even at this relatively late stage in life she fell in love with it. She swapped the Czech Republic for Spain and started climbing full-time. 

‘To me climbing is not a sport, it is much more’, says Petra. ‘It’s living in nature, the van life, beautiful places and lots of great friends. Such a life just makes you happy.' 

In winter Petra works as a ski teacher in the Sierra Nevada but for the rest of the year she’s based in Rodellar where she works and climbs. She speaks fluent English and Spanish.
