  • Video: Caroline Ciavaldini - First Female Ascent of Requiem (E8 6C)

    Name: Caroline Ciavaldini
    Age: 29
    Home climbing area: Reunion Island

    How did you get into climbing? In Reunion Island, I had gymnastic, rugby, and then climbing as my sport at school. I liked it, started the afterschool climbing program, and the ball was rolling!

    What kind of climbing do you do? You could say that I am a pure product of the French climbing federation, which means that I started as a competition climber, doing 10 years of World Cups. But then I bumped into a weird climber from the UK, who said the word:”trad” to describe his climbing. I had no idea what that meant, and it took me a while to become crazy enough to try it. Well, it seems I have gone a long way, as now I trad climb, multipitch climb, boulder, sport climbs, all of it averagely well, with a definite low point on bouldering… Maybe that is an OK definition of the dearly English “overall climber,” isn’t it?

    What does climbing mean to you? That is a tough one… let’s say, A LOT. That's safe.

    Favorite Climbing Area: The world. I used to say Saint Leger du Ventoux is the best climbing area I know, as there is indeed awesome limestone tuffas, but no slippery slates, no sandstone, nor gritstone… so until I find one area that has everything, I will only settle for the world.
