Welcome to the official website of climber Petra Klingler

imageI was born into climbing, with a long family history in the sport. I am an active member of the Swiss national climbing team and my recent victory (2016) at the IFSC World Championships in Paris was one of my proudest moments in my competitive climbing career to date. I am always looking forward to the next competition and I am always striving to achieve more through my passion and work ethic.

I am fascinated by the mixture of power, endurance, flexibility and cleverness you need for climbing. Climbing gives me the pleasure to move and be in harmony with the wall.
